    Suggested enhanced for MXML/AS editor

      Hi Everybody,

      I have a minor suggested improvement to the MXML andf ActionScript editor in Flex Builder 3. When you hit the home key, I think it should always go to the first non-whitespace character on the line, not all the way to the very first column.

      Right now, if you hit the home key without holding down shift, this is the behavior you get. If you hold down shift and then hit home, the cursor will travel to the first column, highlighting everything (including indentation whitespace).

      I often find myself wanting to grab an entire line, and I habitually do this by hitting end, shift-home, ctrl-c, and then pasting wherever I want the contents. I have to manually trim the whitespace, or manually highlight only the actual code section that I wish to copy (before hitting ctrl-c).

      Has anybody else noticed this? I think it would be a good idea to have uniform "home" behavior. It's confusing to get one behavior when pressing home, and another behavior when pressing shift-home.
