This is typical of a stack that is opened in any mode that isn't 
toplevel. For example, palettes and modeless stacks can't be edited. You 
can change the mode of your stack in several ways; one way is to just 
type into the message box:

   toplevel "myStack"

You can also change it from the Application Browser by right-clicking 
the stack name in the list and choosing "toplevel" from the menu.

Once you've changed the stack to toplevel, these will come back.
