After 'Click on the "Voice 2" button . . . and before Enter all the lower voice notes (down-stem).'
This makes the note selected a voice 2 note but simultaneously a voice 1 pause was created.
Select the (blue) pause and select Voice 2, this switches the voicing of the originally selected note back as a voice 1 note and the pause is now marked as a (green) voice 2 pause.
and then use the original text: 'Enter all the lower voice notes (down-stem).'
I'm sure most beginners like me stumbled on this one originally but eventually figured it out but . . . ;o)
