Consider all of these feature requests if it's not possible to do now... if it is possible already, I'd like to know how!

1. Is it possible to refactor rename a class? I love the refactor rename of functions/variables, but it doesn't seem to let me do it to class names (I tried selecting the class name and the constructor.) I can rename the file itself, but no references are updated. The part that is particularly annoying post-rename is the import statements, which are not always the same everywhere the class was referenced (due to truncated imports, default package not needing imports, etc) so a single find-and-replace usually doesn't do the trick. Same issues with moving a class.

2. In Flash Builder you can ctrl+click to go to definition, in FD you hit F4... is there any possibility to get clicking to go to source definition?

3. My mouse has forward/back buttons, and when you go to source definitions in Flash Builder you can use them to navigate forward/backward through your location history. I'd love to be able to do the same in Flash Develop!

4. Is it possible to highlight references that don't have a recognized definition, say with squigly red underline like misspelled words?

1. Not supported yet.

2.There's a plugin for that, search the forum.

3. Shift+F4 to jump back after pressing F4 - navigation buttons is a desirable addition, I'm not sure if someone created a plugin for that.

4. No, you need to compile for that (F8 key).

Thanks for the reply Philippe!

Maybe a dumb question, but how do you create a plugin? I'd like to take a crack at mouse forward/backward navigation... since you already have goto and goback hopefully it wouldn't be too hard?

Random: the code generation feature completely rocks!

It would be cool if the Code Formatter could treat getter/setter functions differently from normal functions. Unlike my other functions, I like to keep my getters and setters on a single line.

That is, starting with:
public function set foo(bar:Bar):void { _fooBar = bar; }
public function get foo():Bar { return _fooBar; }

Code Formatter changes it to:
public function set foo(bar:Bar):void
     _fooBar = bar;

public function get foo():Bar
     return _fooBar;

That's how I usually like my functions to look... unless they're getters/setters.

PS - I love FD, my favorite IDE, keep up the good work! :D

for 2: Before you will make this plugin, it's worth checking if there is already a plugin for this.

And there is:
