Despite the fact that M2 isn't the final release of FDT 4 and even the feature sets of Pure, Pro and Enterprise versions are yet to be determined, it's a solid Flash development tool already.
Even so one of the first issues to tackle with on a Mac is the FDT 4 Debugger throwing back Flash sandbox violation.
The sandbox error looks like this:
Error #2044: Unhandled securityError:. text=Error #2140: Security sandbox violation: file:////Users/flashtekkie/projects/FDT_workspace/FDT_AS3_project/Main.swf cannot load file:////Users/flashtekkie/projects/FDT_workspace/FDT_AS3_project/Resource.swf. Local-with-filesystem and local-with-networking SWF files cannot load each other.
The trick is that the local path in Flash Player's Security Settings, e.g.
isn't in tune with the External SWF Viewer of FDT and expects the URL instead:
Adding the URL of the file should resolve the impasse.

- Global Security Settings panel of Flash Player
