Import XML into template option greyed out

I'm using Adobe Dreamweaver 2021 and my collegue is using an older version.  When following the same exact steps, she is able to go to File>Import>XML into Template to create an htm file from the xml.  When I follow the same steps, the XML into Template option is greyed out/not enabled.  We both have an htm file open, which used to be the ony prerequisite for this option to be enabled.

I've tried having an htm file open, an xml, no files open, etc but the Import>XML into Template is always greyed out.  The user guide doesn't seem to offer a solution for if the option is greyed out. 

Anyone know what I need to do to get the File>Import>XML into Template feature enabled in DW 2021?

I just did some checking into this myself. You have to be outside of Live View to make this work.  So Code, Design, or Split Code and Design will allow this option to be selected.  If you are using Live View or Split Code and Live View the option will be grayed out.  This likely has something to do with interacting with a live server.
