The simple tutorial has not been updated for a few releases.  What steps are you running into that do not match?

I tried to skip this step. Found that I ran into problems with Step 10 as well.
Can you assist?

Step 4

# Add a rotating sprite in the same frameset.

    * Right-click on "Sprite Definitions" and select "New", or select "Sprite Definitions" and then select "New Object" from the File menu or toolbar.
    * Enter "Player" for the sprite definitions name.
    * Select "Rotating Sprite Wizard" from the "Sprite Definition" menu.
    * Select "My Graphics" from the Graphic Sheet dropdown list.
    * Select the Red Triangle and click Next.
    * Leave the default value of 72 states, and click Next.
    * Leave the default values of 1 repeat and 0 mask alpha level and click Next.
    * Enter a prefix of "Norm" and click Next.
    * Select "My Frameset" from the "Frameset" dropdown list and click Next.
    * Select "Use a fixed size for all states" and click Next.
    * Leave the default values of 32 and 32 for width and height, and click Next.
    * Click Finish.
    * Close the Sprite Definition editor.

Have you tried selecting "New" -> "<Blank>" after right-clicking on "Sprite Definitions" and following the rest of the steps?  The only difference is that "New" is a pop-up menu instead of a command that directly creates a blank sprite, I think.

    * Select "My Graphics" from the Graphic Sheet dropdown list.
    * Select the Red Triangle and click Next.
    * Leave the default value of 72 states, and click Next.

The menu is the bar across the top of the window.  When the sprite definition editor window is active, it will include a "Sprite Definition" menu. If you click on that menu to open it, you will see the last item is called "Rotating Sprite Wizard".  Click on that to get into the Rotating Sprite Wizard and follow the remainder of the steps.
