Apple imovie 09 / Cutaway issue

I wonder if any of you can help please.
I am using what I believe to be the latest iMovie 09 version (version 8.0.05) for the first time on my latest MAC BOOK and trying to use the 'cutaway' function in my edit.
I have a flagged the box 'SHOW ADVANCE TOOLS' in order for this 'cutaway' function to be active (under PREFERENCES> GENERAL>SHOW ADVANCE TOOLS). However it is still greyed out (under EDIT>PASTE ADJUSTMENTS> CUTAWAY) and it won't let me use it.
Does any one have any advice on what I may be missing here, any help would be gratefully received as I have an edit to finish by tomorrow!

Grab some video from the event of interest, drag it over some video in your project, release the mouse and an overlay menu appears with 'Cutaway' as an option.
Type cutaway in the iMovies Help search box to see other things you can do with it.
I can't figure out the 'Cutaway' menu item either. It becomes active when you choose a cutaway clip that has been added to the project but doesn't seem to actually do anything. OOPS! Well it did. Now it doesn't. I have to wonder if that is a bug.CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.
