I agonized long and hard before asking this question because I’m afraid it’s very dumb. I’m trying to make a rollover button and I’ve found two tutorials showing how it’s done. After creating the three items and stacking them, the instructions say to choose Actions from the ITEM menu. But Actions is dimmed and cannot be selected. I’ve tried several times – even restarted the program and started over – but I cannot get past this problem. Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong?

Presumably the third item was created when you grouped the two ‘states’ [normal & mouseover]? If not then:
Create a graphic item and colour it. Duplicate with zero offsets and colour the second item differently. Group the items, a third item is automatically created. Deselect, then select the top item and add the rollover action. In the action dialogue box set the graphics to show normal or mouseover as desired. Publish and it should work.
