Using NetBeans GUI Editor with Code Not Created in NetBeans

I have some fairly advanced GUIs that were created in a text editor. I want to change the layout of the GUIs using the NetBeans GUI editor, but I can't seem to figure out how to do that. All I'm able to do is edit the code using the "Source" view in NetBeans (I don't have a "Design" view option). Can anyone give me some instruction on how to do this? Thanks!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
