more DVDA 5 trouble

I am using Vegas movie studio HD platinum coupled with DVD architect studio 5 as part of a production suite which also includes Sound forge and vocal eraser. All these came as a bundle from Vegas. I haven't used the suite for some time as Movie studio woudn't do something I wanted so I switched to Adobe CS5 which did. I now used Adobe for all my HD productions and any SD productions on Vegas which is on another PC> This avoids changing settings all the time.
However I have come across a problem. When making a menu in DVDA 5 I can not open up a choice of
button design or background tenplates. I have read and re-read tutorials and watched DVD disc tutorials and no way can I open up these programmes. I am wondering if my version of DVDA is a cut down versionas it was bundled with Movie studio and doesn't allow these choices, I doubt it. I have clicked onto view and the button and backgrounds are ticked and I have then clicked ALT and the appropriate number
but nothing happens at all. Any suggestions most welcome.

LESLIE> I don't follow what you mean by selecting a MENU. I select MENU BASED when starting a new project. I have a single button which is Click to play. How else do I select a Menu. Cheers

Re: more DVDA 5 trouble

AS I said in my first post I HAVE clicked onto view and then clicked onto which ever subject I wanted and nothing happens. I have now solved the problem and have managed to open the choices of button and themes etc. None of my tutorials have mentioned the fact that you have to click a very tiny arrow to the left of the screen to open which ever subject you require. Also a tiny cross next to the arrow switches them off. I found this by accident as I was so frustrated I clicked everything in sight and then found the solution. It seems that I have wasted a lot of money on tutorials. Thanks for everyone's interest.
