st: Unexpected behavior: commands issued from GUI User menu don't appear in result window, review window, and log file
The following is an unexpected behavior from the User menu in the GUI
The correct (usual) behavior is the following: when you issue a command from
the GUI menus they go into the result window, the review window and the log
E.g. is you use the GUI to issue the command
. graph bar (mean) varname
You see it in the three places mentioned above.
That is great!
But if you add to your profile.do the following line
. window menu append item "stUserData" "my_data" `"use "my_data.dta",
and then you use the GUI to execute the instruction, the only thing that you
see in the result window is a dot; nothing is passed into the review window,
or the log file.
I consider this an undesirable behavior.
I would expect both the result and the review window and the log file to
. use "my_data.dta", clear
On a positive note, I thank StataCorp for the latest, amazing update that
fixes two bugs I pointed out on this list and does much, much more than
