I'm trying to create an image map, and I understand that in order to use the mapping tool, I need to be in design mode. Design mode is not available. When I try to create another website, all options appear as they should, but when I open one my sites that I've been working on, the design option isn't there. I only have code, split, and live. When I go to an empty page, the design mode is there. I am new to this and I don't know if this is normal or maybe I somehow changed the settings.  Please help!

#1 You must be using the legacy Fluid Grid Layout feature that was subsequently removed from DW CC.

Design view is disabled in Fluid Grid Layouts.   Use Bootstrap. It's better for a lot of reasons.  

#2 Image Maps are not responsive.  The hotspot coordinates don't resize to fit responsive images and will drift out of place in smaller devices.   Best advice is to avoid using image maps if you can.

If you must use the Legacy FGLayouts, you could drop back to an older version of DW before design view was disabled in 2014.

As a workaround, you could open your CSS code in Code View and add an X as shown below.  DO NOT USE CSS DESIGNER PANELS for this.  It won't work.

/*

    Dreamweaver Fluid Grid Properties

    ----------------------------------

    dw-num-cols-mobile:     X 4;

    dw-num-cols-tablet:        8;

    dw-num-cols-desktop:    12;

    dw-gutter-percentage:    25;

=====================================

Save. Close DW, re-open DW.  This will trick DW into thinking it's a normal layout so you can use Design View.
