MultiTerm "adding entries from Word" works - but: all buttons are grey

So far I've been working with MTerm only with imported glossaries and without problems (apart from the usual ones I mean), but recently I wanted to give "Add terms from Word" a try. "Adding entries from Word" and the "show quick entries form" work fine, but: when I click on "add entry" and the dialog box appears, all buttons are grey. I can add and select level fields, add informations, or enter the fields value - but when it comes to choosing "add", or "update entry" (in the existing entries box), or whatewer option I can select, I'm at a loss. I know there is a button for "more" (to see the full box), "add", and maybe cancel (?), I've managed to find out which is which, at least for the two most important ones, but it's really annoying. Has anyone had the same problem?
Any help would be appreciated!

I work with:

Word PE 2003 SP3
Trados WB 7.1.0 719
MultiTerm 7.5.0 444 (Build 448)

Thanks in advance,
