Just wanted to exclaim to the world (well the handful of people that happen to read this post anyway that FlashDevelop is freaking unbelievable!
After using the Flash CS3 IDE to edit code, FlashDevelop is pure bliss! I did try it a few Beta versions back, but never for an AS2 project that was half way through. The speed with which I can code in FlashDevelop Vs. the Flash IDE is increased 3 fold. I know Vista and CS3 and my rather old hardware (yes I’ve got 2Gb of memory) are causing some of the issues I experience when editing .as files in Flash, but FlashDevelop isn’t affected by these same issues.
I just want to say thanks to Philippe for the work he’s put into this program.
Here’s hoping Adobe pull their finger out and put a usable text editor into the next version of Flash. Until then, FlashDevelop is my new best friend.
