why is a new page needed (import is grayed out) - Macromedia Dreamweaver

A new blank doent is opened every time Dreamweaver starts - I have turned this off because it is annoying and unnecessary for my purposes. But without any doents open I cannot import a Word-HTML doent to clean-up? This is despite the fact that the imported/cleaned html file opens up as a separate new file anyway. All the import options are grayed out when there are no pages open. This means I always need a blank doent sitting in the background if I want to clean Word-HTML doents. Isn't this a bit of a nuisance and can I get round ...

    This means I always need a blank doent sitting in the background if I want to clean Word-HTML doents.

    Isn't this a bit of a nuisance and can I get round this?

    Why "import"?
    Just do "open file" and get the word doent you've "saved for web"

    Better add: AFAIK, the only difference "importing word html" or "open
    file" is that the former will automatically launch "clean up word html"
    whereas when using the latter, you'll need to open the command yourself.
