ColdFusion Studio’s design mode has gotten a rather bad reputation, and one it really does not deserve. Design mode works well as long as it’s intent and limitations are understood. Design mode was never intended for use on existing CFM pages, it was intended to be used primarily for initial page design (and thus the name “Design Mode”). It is very useful for initial page layout and design before you start plugging in your CFML code, and should really only be used that way. (Applies to: ColdFusion Studio 4 (or later))
