Thanks for looking into it, Mofi. Yes, I reported it to IDM support when v17 first came out but apparently they are not too interested in fixing it. Starting with v17, if you use HTML_LANG a new built-in tag matching/code folding engine kicks in and you can't do anything custom anymore.
I have used UE for ColdFusion programming for many, many years and as you may know, CFML is essentially ColdFusion tags mixed with HTML. I have always added my CF tags to the custom fold strings -- was very nice. Now, not only can I not customize the fold strings, but the new built-in engine completely breaks down with HTML/CFML files such that even without customizing, you get no usable code folding at all on any tags.
So I am stuck on v16 because it is the last version that will work with HTML/CFML and offer any kind of code folding at all.
Mofi, you seem to be an expert on the word files. Can you think of anyway I can work around the new code folding engine that automatically kicks in on HTML_LANG files? Is there anyway I can craft a custom word file to work with CFML/HTML and give me custom code folding? I tried removing HTML_LANG to stop the built-in engine but then none of the keywords highlight anymore, because I think it has something to do with the keywords all starting with '<' and '</'. Maybe you know some tricks to make it work without the HTML_LANG specifier.
Thanks again for you time.
