+1 vote. The search function increases speed of debugging and maintenance, hence productivity. Its failure will therefore have a negative impact on productivity.

"Coldfusion Search feature" is withdrawn from CFB3 onwards. Same will be removed from Preferences > Keys as well. I will log a separate bug for that.

It is now over 8 months later and this feature is still listed in the official help documents and the shortcut is bound (but non functional) in ColdFusion Builder 2016 (3.1). Please restore this vital feature. We cannot purchase any more licenses without it.

ColdFusion Search is still an advertised feature in CF Builder 2016 (3.1) - it is listed in the help documents, and the product sheet for CF Builder 3 includes this line: "Develop faster—Make the most of your time with a host of features that help you speed up repetitive tasks, program faster, and search and navigate code more conveniently" This is a vital feature. I've also noticed that the tag inspector is missing. We can't justify buying any more licenses if these features are missing.

This is an essential feature of CF Builder. I have been using it since HomeSite, the original version (we went up to version 5). I have been using Builder 2 for a couple of years. I just went to Builder 3 and now find this feature and others not available. Why should I keep using your product if you don't maintain the abilities we need? Thanks, Craig
