Subject Re: Flex Design view removed

I agree with Marcus.

I come from an environment in which there is no equivalent of the code view - everything is
designed by placing objects on the form. 

It was beautiful to come over to Flex and be able to create an place objects on the fly.

I really found I hardly ever used the DV and when I did, it was really clunky. I ended up
creating the objects in code and then running the app to see what they looked like.

The only thing someone mentioned was drag and drop onto a data grid, but hey that's such a
tiny bonus I'd happily do without it.

is maybe nice for small projects. But when your project gets bigger and bigger the design
view is always a pain. When I load a mxml in my flash builder, the editor hangs circa 3 seconds
while loading the design view for this mxml file. This happens even in the code-view!
