Dear all, 

Just wondering any of you might have noticed the following "misnomer" in Stata 7.0. When I click on the [Begin Log] button in the menu bar to open an existing log file, a dialog box comes up for the user to choose a file to be opened. Rather confusingly, the button that is meant for opening the selected log file says [Save] instead of open. It is fine for me because I see the connection for calling it "Save" but it is not obvious to students who are learning the software for the first time.

Just wondering if anyone has had this experience and if Stata had any plan of renaming the button. 

Edmond
