If you want to hide the menu item completely when it is not available, rather than having it grayed out, turn on Hide when Disabled.
Menu items are unavailable when the app is in a state that prohibits the item's command from running.

The alternate state can have a different title, description, and icon than the default state, and you can modify the menu item's behavior by changing the command or its configuration. For example, you could configure the alternate state to run a different workflow.
Press Ctrl+S on your keyboard or click File | Save to save the app.
