Subject Re: alternatives to flash builder

Never tried FDT but I love IntelliJ. It certainly needs some time so you
can understand it's concepts but I think you will be greatly rewarded
because of its features. It's coding assist tools are from another world
(if you like that sort of assistance).

There is also UML support that directly talks to your Flex classes and
other small surprises all over the IDE that makes the development really
fun.

I sound like I advertise it, I know, but I was using Flash Builder before
and when I made the switch I never looked back.

That being said, there are some small features that aren't supported by
Intellij and you can find them in FB, but the team at Jetbrains is taking
feedback VERY seriously so they always push new functionality.
