In my case, I use the Stata built-in editor, in which case shift-apple-d works every time to run a line; you only have to highlight one character within the line, which saves keystrokes.

While giving up the color-highlighting of other text editors, I'm also avoiding the complexity of non-Stata editors on the Mac which I haven't yet solved... (namely, getting them to integrate with stata for running lines!).


Thanks for the info so far!

In my case I work with TextMate as an external editor. Quite frequently TextMate does not execute the the do-file when selecting only one line within a do-file (when executing a single line in TextMate the highlighted line simply is copied to a do-file called textmatetostata.do and then executed). The code gets copied into the textmatetostata.do so executing this file results in what I need but I always have to switch back to TextMate and select that file and execute it. So, if I could simply create a shortcut (like a global macro) for executing the textmatetostata.do within Stata, that would do the trick.

Kind regards,

Andrea

I guess it is possible to assign keyboard shortcuts in Stata e.g. to automatically execute a do-file or else. Unfortunately, I don't have a User's Guide and a web search did not come up with the solution either.
Double-clicking a do-file will automatically execute it (so command-O will also do this).
