Please specify the platform (operating system) you are using. This kind of detail is often specific to platform. 

At guess you are a Windows user. With high probability, it is Windows users who forget to do this. 

%s/STATA/Stata/g is the same kind of error in reverse. I just wrote down something that will make perfect sense to people with certain kinds of computing experience but is likely to be unclear or inappropriate as a comment to others.

If you have long lines in Stata do editor, It is customary to use Ctrl +A 
buttons to select all lines and then Shift button +Cursor to select up to the 
lines we want to run. However, in Stata 11.1, it selects the opposite.  Briefly, 
if you are working on do file, say, with 600 lines and if you want to execute up 
line 400, what I usually do is just press Ctrl+A (that select all lines) and 
then put my cursor on line 400 (to select from line 1 up to line 400). However, 
in Stata 11.1 it selects line 400 up to 600 (exactly the opposite of what I want 
to select and execute). Is there anyone who may face the same problem with me? I 
appreciate any suggestion.
