On Coldfusion Builder 2, I see these tabs are available when I create a new page, but not on Coldfusion Builder 3.

What should I do to show them on CFB 3?

Builder 3 does not seem to offer those sub-tabs in its toolbar, but if you open each of those kinds of files, you’ll find that the top toolbar (where they appeared) shows many of the same icons for each of those type of files as was previously listed in those sub-tabs.

I realize that isn’t as helpful if you are opening a single CFM or HTML file which happens to have also HTML, CSS, and JS code in it. You won’t see the icons for that other kind of code, even when you move to such code.

FWIW, note that CFB 1 and 2 had previously relied upon an underlying 3rd party tool called Aptana, for most such HTML, CSS, and JS-specific functionality. In CFB3 that product was dropped and the CFB team tried to recreate much of its functionality. This (the tabs for other code within a single file extension) may be something they didn’t think was used often, or maybe there was a challenge in doing so.

Even so, do note also that there is still support for CSS and JS (and HTML) within a CFM page, in terms of CFB’s features like code completion, code assist, outline view, etc.

Still, I realize that some of the “wrap”-oriented tools in that old toolbar aren’t accessible any other way, so you may want to file a feature request (or bug report, however you may want to cast it) at bugbase.adobe.com.

Hope that’s helpful.
