First I think you must turn on Show Advanced Tools from Preferences to be able to see the Precision Editor. You don't need that to split a clip though. The easiest way is to right click on a clip where you want to split it and choose Split Clip.

I happened to stumble upon the solution. Not sure how I figured it out, but the Split clip is now NOT dim. It took me 3 hours on this Saturday morning to get to that point.
Thanks for all your reply.

One thing I don't understand is the different between dragging an audio clip over the project (which makes the large green background) and dragging it over a clip (which makes a thin green line below the clips. In the latter case I was able to split clips (but only with the cmd shift S key). In the former, I couldn't at all. Everything was dim and the key board short cut didn't work either.
