Construct Polygons from .dwg polylines

When using the Construct Polygons tool in ArcGIS Pro, I am not able to select the .dwg polylines so I can generate the polygon.  I am following the instructions found here:  https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/editing/construct-polygons-from-features.htm.

 

I also have a question about line 3 of the instructions. 

 

Click Active Select Active Select and select the polyline features from which you want to create the new polygon features. The features must be on the same layer.

 

What does it mean when it states "The features must be on the same layer."  Does that mean I cannot select polylines from a .dwg to create into a feature class?

 

When I try to select the polyline.  It flashes, but does not get selected.  Video is attached.
