If in Stata you were to -findit editor- you'd find a link to a FAQ on using
text editors and Stata (a very interesting FAQ, in fact). So, e.g., pasting
from the FAQ:
Adding an editor to your menu system (Jens M. Lauritsen)
Edit the contents of your profile.do to include a line like
qui window menu append string "Edit" "&P Pfe" "winexec \program
files\pfe\pfe32.exe"
This example would add the Windows editor PFE, which I use, to the Edit menu
of Stata. Naturally, change the details given your own editor and its
location on your system.
I think you'll find all the info there that you need.
BTW, I live in Lacey, so if you want to discuss this or other Stata issues
one-on-one, I can be reached at 360.493.0060.
Ciao..Frank

Subject: st: Using another editor in Windows Stata 7
I am learning Stata (I am long time SAS, Splus user)
I would prefer to use my own Windows editor KEDIT (used it for years)
available in a local directory as "c:\kedit\kedit.exe"
How is it possible for me to have Stata use this editor rather than its own?
Right now I work in KEDIT and the copy and paste.
Thanks
