Let me give an off topic answer. Use CFScript as much as possible Automatic closing tags are often more trouble than they are worth

just type </ the editor will write the corresponding closure tag.

Are you opening the file as a .cfm file? Or if creating a new file, are you telling it to create a new CF file? It needs to know that a file is CFML before it will regard it as such. Note also that if you don't go to the additional step of defining what CFB calls a "project" (where you point it at the folder holding your code), then some additional features don't work well. If you may just be opening the editor and trying to have a go, you would do well to check out the docs that are available. They walk one through getting started, and understanding the features and how to enable them. At a minimum, check out the getting started guide: <a href="https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/getting-started-coldfusion-builder.html" rel="nofollow">https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/getting-started-coldfusion-builder.html</a> Beyond that, see the CFB docs offered on the left (along with other CF docs) at: https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/user-guide.html

I just had the same struggle and found the solution - you were close!  Under HTML -> Editor -> Typing I had to set the Auto-close tags to When typing '>' of start tag.
