Storyboard Pro doesn't have a full set of options and I can't even create a new slide

Unlike in the tutorials my storyboard pro has an incredibly limited amount of options and it’s mostly just a white page with a few tools I don’t need at the bottom. And when I go to storyboard > new > all the options are “greyed out” and unavailable as are most of the other options. Can somebody please tell me a possible reason for this? I bought a monthly subscription to storyboard pro and I don’t want to have wasted my money. I provided screenshots to give you a better idea of what it looks like.

That’s because you are in the “Pitch Mode” workspace which is
more of a presentation workspace rather than a storyboarding one.
Try using the Drawing or Timeline workspace instead and select
a location on the timeline where you are creating the new panel.

Could you please elaborate as to how I can get out of pitch mode and how to use the drawing and timeline workspace?
