So what option do I have to check the syntax of my code, now that the 'check syntax' button is gone? I've been scouring the net for over an hour, and no one even mentions it's dissappearance other than Adobe's formal announcements of it's deprecation.
How can a intermediate coder such as myself check syntax?
you can use the code formatter.
but make sure you know how to use the undo function in case the formatter destroys you code.
That only seems to correct the structure of the indentations of my code. It doesn't call out wrongly spelled code, for instance. I don't understand how this was seen as an unnecessary feature worthy of deprecation!
the formatter will find mis-matched curly brackets which is a common problem. but if that's no help to you, then it's not.
