Please drag your character into the scene. The character manager cannot add components to prefabs.

I am following the getting started tutorial, everything seems to go okay until I get to add character, I drag nolan onto the character part, and I get that message. All other options stay greyed out.

Unity 2019.2.9f1

Brand New scene

Had to do with the nolan character being a prefab.

I am still very new to unity.

When you are adding your character make sure you have first dragged your model into the scene and not in the project view. You can create a prefab after you have created the character.
