My apologies if this is a dumb question but...
As a long term user of Homesite now trying out CF Builder I am discovering things that I take for granted in Homesite that are missing in CF Builder that, for me, are complete show stoppers in terms of me actually spending money to 'upgrade' to a new IDE. I've been ignoring this one for a while assuming that it was just the way I was using CF Builder, but now I am not sure and am hoping that someone here can either confirm it or enlighten me as to how to do what I want to do...
I simply want to open a 'blank' page in CF Builder without it having to be associated with a project or a file or anything like that. I just want to press ctrl-N and get a blank page that I can paste stuff into and use as a scratchpad - with no popups asking for names or projects or anything. I might want to save it later as a file and maybe as part of a project, but "right now" I just want a blank page. Someone suggested that a new snippet might be what I wanted but even that pops up a window asking for a name for the snippet.
Any and all advice is very much appreciated.
Yep, I miss that too. Not from Homesite, per se, but just as a standard text-editor-y sort of feature. One should not have to save a file before typing into it; one should just be able to go CTRL-N and get a new blank page to type into.
I recommend go raising an enhancement request:http://cfbugs.adobe.com/bugreport/flexbugui/cfbugtracker/main.html
Post the issue number back here and I'll go vote for it.
