How do I make visible the TI Radio Packet Info menu to see BLE RSSI from a Texas Instruments sniffer?

Hello,

  I am using a Texas Instruments evaluation board as a Bluetooth sniffer.  The process is documented here: https://software-dl.ti.com/lprf/packet_sniffer_2/docs/user_guide/html/users_guide.html

  I am seeing packets in Wireshark, but I am unable to see the RSSI.  I submitted a case to Texas Instruments including my saved .pcap file.  Texas Instruments support opened the file and successfully saw the RSSI in the saved file.  He is using Wireshark version 3.0.14.  I am using the latest version and I do not see the TI Radio Packet Info menu, which contains the RSSI information.

 Do you know what I have to do to be able to see RSSI on a BLE packet?

Thanks, Stephen
