Bugs? - Macromedia Director Basics

I'm posting here in hope of reaching developers. As I'm new 2 Director because a customer wanted to have a shoockwave based solution despite my effort to consult them otherwise :-) I have 2 bugs to report. Both are not critical but in fact very annoying: (*) In JavaScript mode comments are not colored as comments after closingh and opening a director file. (*) <ctrl>+<arrow-key> jumps to the next script of the cast ... this overwrites the standard windows behaviour of jumping one word right or left - it would be fine if one could disable this shortcut. All in ...

    I'm posting here in hope of reaching developers. As I'm new 2 Director because
    a customer wanted to have a shoockwave based solution despite my effort to
    consult them otherwise :-) I have 2 bugs to report. Both are not critical but
    in fact very annoying:

    (*) In JavaScript mode comments are not colored as comments after closingh
    and opening a director file.
    (*) <ctrl>+<arrow-key> jumps to the next script of the cast ... this
    overwrites the standard windows behaviour of jumping one word right or left -
    it would be fine if one could disable this shortcut.

    All in all I think the javascript support has no series-production
    readiness but is a step into the right direction as Flash (which i like more
    than director despite the fact that it has no 3d support) uses javascript for
    actionscript. but before you ask: I'm aware that I'm the only single director
    user which codes JavaScript :)

    Furthermore the doentation is only fragmentary. Examples are at some places
    mentioned but not included (see "draw" and "fill" method).

    regards,
    f.s.

    Try <alt>+<arrow> instead - it works for me.

    I hate the color coding bugs also. At least I haven't run into the issue from
    Director 8.5 when all of the sudden the ctrl key stops working and when you're
    trying to copy it just inserts a random "c" into your code.

    You know what would be great.,... if macromedia used the homesite engine for
    coding inside of director instead of that tired code editor from 1980.
