Artifact layout, can't select "Inline artifact" for included jar files

Newbie IntelliJ user here -- one week old, but absolutely loving the program.  How did I live so long without it?  

I am trying to make a jar artifact which will contain the source from my project PLUS two library jars.  I assume that I need to get IntelliJ to "inline" these two jars so that their classes are visible in the output jar.

My problem is that if I select one or other jar in the left hand part of the Output Layout pane, the context menu always shows "Inline Artifact" greyed out!  Please, what do I do to get these jars inlined?

I can't be the first person to have this problem, but I also can't find anything about this anywhere on the web.  Apologies if somehow I've missed the answer somewhere

System details: Mac OS 10.6, IntelliJ 9.0.2 Community Edition.

"Inline Artifact" action works only for artifacts defined in IDEA. Currently IDEA doesn't allow to include content of a jar file into an artifact.
However there is a feature request for this problem (http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-51729) and it will be probably supported in the next
version.
