I’m into AS3 with both legs now and for the OOP part I’d like to use an external editor. I tried FlashDevelop. Coming from the Flash IDE background I found the “AutoFormat” feature very handy and I’d also like this feature in my chosen external editor. I only found an autoindent plugin for FD.

Not just auto indent, but I’d like it to apply certain formatting patterns like spaces around operators, cuddling, auto ; signs and things like that. Call me lazy but even if I got the indenting and put the ; signs there still are some formatting to be done and it would be great if I could just apply that with one click.

FlashDevelop is nice and simple. You can try FDT or Flex also.

This is one of those questions that you will never get a good enough answer. It’s like asking “Wich one do you love more? Your father or your mother?” :)

FlashDevelop is my favourite editor. It saves me a lot of time with its shortcuts, code generation, assets control, etc. But again, this is a personal choice.

FlashDevelop rocks!! :p

Okay but which one of these have the proper AutoFormat? So far I only found that in Flash itself. Tried to saturate my question around that becaue I’d even use notepad if it had that feature. But that wouldn’t be better than Flash… I really liked how FD works however:)

Flash CS5 IDE has better AutoFormat than CS3 .
Better class handling, function handling.
