Sharepoint Designer 2013, XSLT List View Options ribbon option is not showing

Sharepoint Designer 2013, XSLT List View Options ribbon option is not showing


I have an ordinary Wiki Page, also tried making an Article Page.
Once this page is made, I add an XsltListViewWebPart that points to a list, which is fine, this is added from the sharepoint web site page edit.
When I open it up in Sharepoint Designer 2013, and select the XsltListViewWebPart the ribbon does not contain the List View Options listview for me to edit the filters, parameters etc.
What I do notice is, when I add the XsltListViewWebPart from inside the Sharepoint Designer 2013, I see the ribbon section fine. However once I save changes on the page, close it and re-open it, same issue, can't see that ribbon section.

The solution :
Go to Edit web part and select "Miscellaneous" property and click on Server Render checkbox.
then you will able to see that in designer
hope it helps!
