I couldn't live without it! I really miss some of its functionality in FB^3.

I believe this can be done in FB^3 (but not FBII) - just compile your app,
with the debugger options active and the relevant break points set.
Remember in FB^3 all runs are of a seperate compiled application which is
sublaunched by the FB^3 compiler.

I don't know about the hierarchical menus. I've never used any but this
needs to be explored if it is a problem. Perhaps you should send a demo and
bug report to Staz?

Need any more details?
