Fred Wolfe ( and Thorsten Faas

Stata 10 for Windows Do-file Editor:

Fred is correct.  If two empty Do-file Editors are opened in Stata for
Windows, their initial label in the title bar will each be

problems when you try to execute or save a do-file from either editor.
This will be fixed in the next exectuable update in a few weeks.

Keyboard navigation in Stata for Windows Do-file Editor's
'Search/Replace' dialog should work as Thorsten described, but it does
not.  This will also be fixed in the next executable update in a few
