I created my own UDL to colorize CFM templates because I couldn’t find a good one.
The one I created now works 99% and the colorization of the different parts of a CFM file look nearly identical to the way it looks when editing a CFM file in CF9 or earlier.
This has allowed me to print my CFM files on a color laser printer for development.
All that said and done, is there an existing CFM/CFML NPP plugin that might do more?
on the quick, i’ve only been able to find this older cf plugin:
I just noticed this (nppColdFusion) doesn’t seem to run anymore with version 7.6.6 - are you guys still able to use it?
Thought I’d post this here as a solution, which is in contradiction to the instructions given on the main plugin page.
Their instruction was to move your dll’s to %PROGRAMDATA%… however, all you need to do is (from within N++) go to the plugins folder (Plugins>Open Plugins Folder…) and move your <pluginname>.dll to a folder within the Plugins folder of the same name, so for us its:
Folder Name -> nppColdFusion
Move -> nppColdFusion.dll to this new folder
Restart N++ and all good - also worked for ComparePlugin
@Mark-Kentwell231 My nppColdFusion also suddenly stopped working with 7.6.6. Your workaround worked awesomely!
Thanks for helping the community.
Not a workaround. Just how things are in Notepad++ 7.6.x land.
I’m on 7.7 and moved my dll as suggested but trying to open any CFML file or selecting the CF language causes a crash. Anyone else?
Found the thread where it’s being discussed. Never mind.

Well, it seems no matter what I try, I cannot get the nppColdFusion plugin to work with 7.7 at all. So Randy DiCotti - would you be willing to share your exported UDL with us? I’d be very grateful if you would.
