Well look at that...indeed it did work in 8.2. The change in default (Ctrl-V or Edit-Paste) behavior is nice.

Indeed I did forget the comma in the second command, and included a // rather than a /// -- though of course the problem remains even when those are fixed.

I did have to use shift-insert rather than right click-paste or ctrl-v, so maybe that has changed, i.e. paste commands that are normally interchangeable are not so in Stata 8.2, maybe they are in 9.Tha is, I can cut and paste the following from this email (Try it!): forval i=1/3 { di `i' }

But not this:I encounter the same problem in 8.2. You can edit before hitting enter, i.e. get rid of the // and combine the lines. Also, I think you are missing a comma.

I wonder if StataCorp could change this, and if others would find that useful?
