Hi Statalist, 

The Stata do-file editor obviously recognizes a number of keystrokes which are shortcuts for some features. For example, Ctrl-I is indent and Ctrl-Shift-I is decrease indent. These were available in the menu of Stata 10 editors, but not anymore in Stata 12, although the shortcuts continue to work. 

Occasionally I pressed something accidentally, and the editor changed in some queer ways, and I wasn't able to identify what I pressed. Once the spacing between the lines increased. Another time "hidden characters" which seemed to be paragraph marks appeared, and I wasn't able to get rid of them except by closing and reopening the file. Has someone collected a list of active shortcuts for the do-file editors? 

Thanks in advance,
