This was clear in Stata 9. In Stata 10, the -run- and -do- icons are virtually indistinguishable. If I look very closely I can see some very faint lines on the right-hand (do) icon, but for all intents and purposes they look like two of the same, as they both have this big green arrow covering most of the page. Not a good visual reference, and one which I hope StataCorp will rethink.

Stata 10 for Mac OS X.

I think there was some complaint recently about these icons looking
similar. They are distinguished by run having no lines on the page in
the icon (under the great arrow head), whereas do has lines. When you
run a program you don't get commands echoed to the results window.
When you do a .do file you do get commands echoed. I just found out
that for those who don't use the command "run", it is confusing. For
those who use run and do, it's not.
