I can't reproduce the problem. Please could you try the latest nightly build?
Of course ! I use the build 345 of v4.0.5 ! In the 5th step, the Edit button is displayed and clickable. Then, other buttons are displayed : "Save" and "Cancel". But, impossible to change the source code !! The cursor blinks but unable to edit P-code... I don't know why. This problem is occured only after playing swf file (when I clik on the root of the tree, or when I choose to run a sub-swf as frame).
OK, I have tryed to test with build 346 but it's the same problem.
I still can't reproduce it. Please check the attached video.
Maybe this is the same issue as #577 MAybe it is wrong only on some computers.. please could you test it on a diffrent machine?
I think I found the problem. You missed an important step: 4.5: click on the swf Probably this is the same issue which was reported by me: #736 I can't find any solution for this problem, I tried every possible way to set the focus back to FFDec, unsuccessful. But there is a workaround: press ALT-Tab twice. Can you confirm that this is the same issue? Can you write text after switching to another program, and swhitching back to FFDec?
About your video : In fact, we play the swf file, and click on buttons. Then it's impossible to re-edit the code. About #577 : Not te same problem. About #736 : Yes ! when I push twice ALT+TAB, then it's possible to modify the P-Code. It's the solution. If possible, I will attempt to use ffdec on other computer (with XP pro)...
