How to create a "new file" in ColdFusion Builder without use of a project

Note: This blog post is from 2013. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.
A newcomer to ColdFusion Builder (coming from Dreamweaver) expressed frustration on the Adobe CFBuilder forum about the challenge of doing something as simple as creating a new file--without having to name it first, and when not using "projects".

I offered a reply, both explaining why CFB has a project-oriented nature (being an Eclipse-based product) and also how they could be seen akin to DW "sites". Still, I appreciate the difference and the challenge to newcomers.

But most important, I explained how the Aptana plug-in built-into CFB does indeed offer a solution for him, in its "Untitled Files" feature, easily accessed from the File>New dialog. This would let him create a new file without need of either naming the file first or picking a project (whether when creating the new page or when saving it).

It's not an obvious solution, but I show how it can be made to be easily accessible with a single keystroke.

Rather than repeat myself here, I'll just point interested readers to the forum thread, "Creating a new file". Perhaps others will share more insights after mine, and feel free to leave comments here or there as you see fit.

1. how to create a ColdFusion Page in ColdFusion Builder 2?

When I type :
"<cfset artistsObj = createObject("component","artistscfcs.ARTISTSService").init() />

<cfset artistsQry = artistsObj.getAllARTISTS() />
<cfdump var="#artistsQry#"/>"

in an index file in my Project and lick Firefox tab beside source, it shows message: The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost.

My Server is running normal, connection is OK! How to fix?

@Alex, your question is not on-topic with this blog entry. I see that you asked the same question in the Adobe CFBuilder forum. That's the best place to ask such a question. If/when I can get some time, I'll offer an answer there, if no one else has by then.
