How to view Flex compilation issues?

I must be missing something very simple but where does IDEA show all the on-the-fly analysis errors for a Flex project? I can see them in the scroll-bar gutter but that is obviously per-file only and then there is the Problems scope in the Project window which is not really a list (it is a filtered project tree that is kind of hard to navigate and it also means that I cannot see the list of issues and the full project structure at the same time). Then there is the Messages window that appears on build but that gives me only one error at a time and anyway, I don't want to wait for a full build to see my code issues when IDEA already does the on-the-fly analysis.

Where is the equivalent of the Error List panel from Visual Studio or the Problems window in Eclipse? (Sorry for this stupid question, I am new to IDEA and surely I am missing something obvious.)

IntelliJ IDEA shows live error highlighting for the file that is open in the editor. To get full analysis try Analyze | Inspect Code.
Flash Builder by default always performs background compilation and shows compiler errors in the Problems window. Note that these results do not include errors in source files that are not referenced from the main class directly or indirectly and also do not include inspections results (I don't think there are any in Flash Builder, but IntelliJ IDEA has some). To get the same problems in IntelliJ IDEA you need to click Build | Make.

Thanks, I have discussed this with colleagues that know IDEA well and they confirmed that there is no equivalent of the Problems view in Eclipse. This comes as a real surprise to me but OK, that's how it is.
