Difficult to change code in editable region - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I have a page attached to a template.

    Default Difficult to change code in editable region

    I have a page attached to a template. Often, when I try to change the code
    in an editable region (such as adding ColdFusion <cfif></cfif> or
    <table>...</table>), I get an error message saying "Making this change would
    require changing code that is locked by a template or a translator. The
    change will be discarted.".

    Then, all the code I just wrote disappears. I can open the file in notepad
    and make the changes, and it then works fine in Dreamweaver, but this is
    very time consuming. Is there an easy solution to this problem?

    The editable region is a cell in a table on the template. I have the
    editable region defined to be everything INSIDE (but not including) the <td>
    and </td> tags. I have tried it including those tags, but I get the same
    error.

    Thanks,

    The problem still exists in the 6.1 updater but it is not as bad in that you
    can get the code to stay. Suggest that you download the update.
