Can't make Linqs

Since switching over to the new LingQ 2.0, I can no longer make linqs. I have tried using the keyboard to highlight words and also tried hovering over a blue word with my cursor, but neither seems to work. Am I doing something wrong here?

@VMG - What happens when you click on a blue word? Or, click on a blue word or phrase after you have selected it. You need to click now to see the hints in the dashboard at right. If you prefer hovering, you can minimize the dashboard and hover instead.
