When working on a PHP or JavaScript file the script is checked for syntax errors as you type. If an error is found the error message is displayed above the code editor. You can also click the line number in the error message to be taken straight to the broken line. This is an excellent tool for debugging and is a great time-saver during development. When you close an opening HTML tag the closing tag is automatically appended. This is another time-saver. You can select all code between brackets by pressing ctrl ‘ or selecting “Balance Braces” from the edit menu. If you press it again it will find the next outter set of braces. This works for regular, square and curly brackets. This is useful for finding a closing bracket – or checking if brackets match up.
