st: problem pasting into command window with latest Stata update (WinXP)
I just downloaded the latest ado and exe updates for my Stata 9.2 SE running
on Win XP pro and have encountered a problem.
Since the update, I have found that when I paste multiple commands into the
command window at once, they get concatenated into a single line, causing an
error. Prior to this update, I could paste several lines from a do file
into the command window and they would each execute in turn. Is this some
new behavior or "feature" related to the most recent exe? The help whatsnew
19. The Command window now has keyboard shortcuts reinstated from Stata 8.
Using Ctrl-Backspace to delete a whole word is an example.
I have tried using various combinations of Ctrl, shift, and insert keys
(which I seem to remember was needed in Stata 8 to get the multiple lines to
work), but haven't found a solution. Anyone else experience this change?
While I'm mentioning this, I might as well ask about my biggest interface
problem with Stata 9 (since 9.0) -- the Review window no longer maintains a
highlight on a command after I double click it to make it re-run. When I
want to rerun a series of commands that are far back in the review window I
need to scroll back each time and search for my place, making the window
almost useless. In Stata 8.x the review window would keep your place and
maintain highlighting. Is there any fix to this?
