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.

Well, I just did the exact same thing in Stata 8.2, so I suspect this has been around a while and you just now noticed! 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.


But not this:

sysuse auto, clear
graph twoway scatter mpg price //
title("My Title")

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