After installing Aptana Studio, the Eclipse plugin version, it changes the standard Flex CSS editor to it’s own version. This gives you a lot of errors because of the syntax differences. Luckily this can be changed back to normal (Flex) by going to Window > Preferences > General > Editors > File Associations. Here you can change the default editor for the CSS file type from the ‘Aptana CSS Editor’ to the ‘CSS Editor’. Then after restarting Flex Builder everything should work fine again.

    Also, you can right click the CSS file and choose Open With, then choose the appropriate CSS editor. Eclipse will open up that CSS file by default each time.

    hey, I was bumping my head for 15 minutes asking why in the mxml file the style definitions were ok, but in an external .css file there were so many errors. Thanks a lot

    Hey Wietse,

    I was wonder if you’ve tried the latest version of Aptana yet. 2.0 is a huge improvement if you ask me. Pretty soon Aptana 3.0 is coming out. Should be here in a couple of months, with a bit more emphasis on the programming side.
