does anyone really use a design view with cfml pages??? any pages?

i love dw, and it is my main ide for cf development. but may i suggest
if you use dw to only use code view, especially with anything but basic
html pages (and even with those if you are serious and care about the
code you produce, be it even plain html).

just add .cfm and .cfc extensions to the list of files to be opened only
in code view under dw preferences -> file types/editors. you won't even
be able to switch to design view for those files then...

one and a 3/4 gripe i have with the cf8 dw extension (see Ken's post
above for url) is with the cf help that comes with it:
- the lack of attributes explanation in the Adobe CFML Reference help
section (1/2 gripe)
- total lack of anything useful in the Adobe CF Functions Reference help
section (1 gripe)
- typos in a couple of attribute names suggested by dw code hinting (1/4
gripe)

with so many new tags and functions added in cf8, this is a bit of a
bummer. cf7 extension was great - loved the help. no i have to open my
cfml reference pdf when i need to lookup a function syntax...
