Configure search to search .tpl files

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?

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

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
