So in AS4 you could minimize the programmer window and use the AVRISP to download your built code with a single button on the toolbar. I haven't been able to find this feature in AS6. After building I have to select Tools/Device Programming, click the Apply button, select Memories, finally click the program button. Then I can't edit my code until I close the programming window requiring me to go through the whole process again. It's really a pain when you're making small changes or tweaking values. Please tell me I'm just not seeing it and there is a way to download code without going through all that rigamorole.

It's [/Debug/Start Without Debugging]

If it doesn't work for you, check the settings in the the Tool tab in your project's properties.

I have not found it either.
From what I recal is that it has disappeared.

what you can do is use the "start without debugging" button
in my set-up it is left of the solution configuration selector(default "debug"). It will build the project and if a programmer is selected it will program the device.

I get it now. I didn't realize that you still need an external JTAG. Since you can program with just the board it seems like you should be able to debug also.

You don't. Start without debugging will do ISP/PDI/TPI/dW just as well as JTAG.
