I have the same problem with EditPlus and every other editor I've tried.
Yes, one could switch to Stata and use the built-in do-editor. However, it
is not exactly feature-rich (no syntax highlighting, etc). Thus, I think
Nick's point is that it would be nice to have the features of a good text
editor married to the convenience of being able to work on the data
currently in memory. Yes, I know, I'm lazy. But I'm GenX; I'm all about
convenience - especially in computing. Don't you think its great that Stata
is already so good that we actually have time to sweat the small stuff?

Best,
Lee
