Following the instruction in the LibreOffice Getting started guide 7.4.
After creating the form using the Form wizard (page 283 ff in the
guide), I at last clicked Finish. The guide says "The form opens in edit
mode". My form looks exactly like the image in the guide (except
translated to Norwegian). But I am not able to edit the layout of the
form. The Form Design toolbar is grayed out except the tool "Open in
design modus", "Automatic focus on control", "New", "Export as ODF",
"Print" and "Search" (or something similar, translated from Norwegian).
Clicking on the "Open in design modus" make no changes in the form view
or the toolbars. The icon "Design modus" is stil grayed out.
The Guide says:"Use the *Control Properties*and *Form Navigator*icons on
the Form Design toolbar to open the corresponding dialogs. (You may need
to select a control for the *Control Properties*icon to become available)"
No help in selecting controls. The tools are still grayed out.
Do I have missed something?

Is there any (simple) way to activate the tools in the toolbar?
