Came from Flash IDE background I used to rely on AutoFormat too but soon I found it is better to format your script by self.

A. AutoFormat may cause Error when using on large script(and it may took you one day to find where it is, if you happen to save and closed the .as file …..... ).

B. Self format make your script easier to read also good for include your own logic in script.

i.e. script like these may mess by AutoFormat
public static var TI_MAX_COLORSIZE    :Number = 0.3;
public static var TI_C_RED            :uint = 0x00;
public static var TI_C_GREEN            :uint = 0x5e;
public static var TI_C_BLUE            :uint = 0xcf;
var array:Array = [
    { text:'a', value:100 },
    { text:'b', value:200 },
    { text:'c', value:300 } ];

FD is great it support some auto format feature when you editing ( format a line after ”;”, [Tab] / [Shift]+[Tab] on multiple lines, auto fill spaces on [Tab] formating … etc, there are more others tricks :P )

i was using flash cs3 IDE for a long time. When someone recommended FlashDevelop to me i was still very reluctant. But once you get used to it, OMG , there’s no way to return back…

I’ve fail to love FDT / Eclipse based IDE several time, first off pain is launching time: under a second in FlashDevelop, FDT oh well…

True. The launch time is long. And after that You have to make some tweeks (turn off some warnings) and keep external libs (TweenLite etc.) as Linked Resources to speed up drastically the automatic build. But in exchange you get the best coding experience.
