I would like the search feature in Dreamweaver to search the text of .tpl files. Currently it does not.  I have added the extension to "preferences > file types> open in code view"  but no luck.  Any suggestions, please?

There is a tech note about this.  There was a bug when searching .tpl files.  Dreamweaver saw them as a Perl file and not as a Cold Fusion file.  (I am assuming you're talking about a Cold Fusion template and not a Smarty template file)

Here's the technote;

Actually, it is a template file for a free forum, phpbb, that I am configuring.  I have had the same trouble with .inc files, and other extensions.  I just want the search feature to look through the text of the files too when searching "All files in Site"

Thanks

This is from the Smarty webiste on configuring DW to recognize the .tpl files;
