Hi Sergiy,

Thank you for your reply. It's really weird that Stata do not want to correct their bugs.. I don't know why they don't want to make it perfect, maybe they think they have enough market power.. Anyway, I'm still trying the Notepad++, hope it will work somehow.

Thanks,

Martin

I really like editors which can highlights key words those staff. I tried ultraEdit but every time it calls a different Stata to run the code which is not desirable..
