    Some more for FD

    CTRL+D – Duplicate Line (I love this shortcut)

    CTRL+T – Transpose Lines (I love this shortcut, too)

    CTRL+B is actually Snippet

    F5 / CTRL+ENTER – Test Movie

    F8 – Build Project

    CTRL+H – Find and Replace

    CTRL+I – Find and Replace in Files

    F3 / Shift+F3 – Quick Find Next/Previous

    CTRL+Q – Comment Line

    CTRL+SHIFT+B – Comment Selection

    Note that all of these shortcuts are very easily modified. I prefer to change the Code Generator from CTRL+SHIFT+1 to the much easier to press ALT+2.

    FlashDevelop also does not require that you press anything to bring up the code completion, or type things in the right order. You can make typos and it still is smart enough to offer what it thinks you meant to type. Take that Flex Builder. Eclipse is garbage at auto-completion, and, unlike FlashDevelop, if you make a typo while typing, you have to start over again.

    thanks for these Steven. I didn’t know about some of these. The comment selection shortcut is very handy.

    I’ll update the table with your list.
