I have no idea whether this is the right season for wish lists, I live
in a country where one is allowed wish lists at any time.

I would gladly see in ... <snip>
I use 2 editors in Windows. Very often I copy (control C) then paste (Control v) to the Stata editor. But to "do current file" in the Stata editor I have to pick up the mouse and find the do button. It would be nice to have another Control + key command to "do current file". Alternatively, allow a function key to be programmed to do this task.

An additional request, give the Stata editor a memory of more than 1 key stroke for those of use who have occasionally lost text with a mistyped key.

Earlier in Stata 7 someone asked whether the review window couldn't display the the place in the window where it was last clicked rather than the bottom of the window, or at least have a key that takes you there or an option to set the window that way.

One last request: a key that takes you to the bottom of the variables window (rather than always the multi-stroke mouse).
