The presence of a background image limits drop-down menu options

I can’t access the “Reverse Selected Contours” and “Component from Selection” options in the right-click drop-down menu when there is a background image present. Is there a reason for this? The image is not selected, it’s actually locked. I select a path to reverse it but can’t do it unless I delete background image first, or unless I access the same option from the Paths menu in the menubar.

As a workaround, select the path, then right click outside the image.

Ok, that seems to work. Thanks!
