We have checked this issue with the steps provided in bug description and observed that intellisense is not working when we try to edit into the layout and also observed that if we try to edit into the layout which is open by 'Open With...' option->select 'Automatic Editor Selector (XML)/ XML (Text) Editor/ XML (Text) Editor with Encoding', then intellisense is working fine.
