As I'm sure you know CF Builder 3 isn't quite perfect yet and the Adobe Bugbase has a not-so-great search interface so I thought I would share some issues I reported recently which have impacted my workflow with the product. Perhaps some of my fellow developers have also run into these annoyances. If you have, or if you feel like supporting these issues to get Adobe's developers to fix them, I encourage you to also leave a note on each bug to increase the likelihood that they get fixed in the next release. Feel free to also post links to bugs/feature requests you've submitted and perhaps the community will also support your bug reports as well.
Below please find the name and link to each bug/feature request. To vote for the bug please click the "my vote" button at the bottom right corner of the page.
Bug 1:Code Coloring Breaks When Comments Used Within Function with Named Arguments
Bug#3831825 - Code Coloring Breaks When Comments Used Within Function with Named Arguments
Bug 2: ColdFusion Builder 3.0 Hangs When Using Code Assist on Large Files
Note: Adobe has asked for code samples on this one. If you have a large CFM or CFC file that hangs when trying to provide suggestions please upload your file to the bug report.
Feature Request 1: Code Suggest Enhancement: Ability to disable code suggest for variables / tags independantly
Note: This one is related to the above bug (bug #2). I believe that if we can turn on/off specific types of suggestions we can improve the performance when using code assist. This one will need a lot of votes since it's a feature request.
Bug 3: ColdFusion Builder Ignores CFELSEIF/CFELSE Tags in Outline
Done. I had already voted for the first one, but just added votes for the other three.
Have you reached out to more folks on Twitter to vote on these issues?
Thanks Carl. I haven't tried Twitter yet as I don't really have any followers that are fellow developers. I've been looking for other people with relevant problems though on forums (this one, stackoverflow, etc...) and when I encounter them I pass along my bugbase submissions.
I'll reach out to my Twitter followers and the #coldfusion hashtag.
