I am trying to edit a site's home page (default.aspx), and when I try to switch to Advanced Mode in SharePoint Designer, the button is grayed.

I'm the Site Collection Admin and I have Enabled Customizing Master Pages and Page Layouts in Central Admin for the web application I am editing.

What can I do to enable Advanced Mode?
