Improvements in the do-file editor

Stata's Do-file Editor—its integrated text editor—is used for editing text files, including do- and ado-files that you write. Stata 15's editor has new features.

One new feature is automatic code reindentation. This includes converting spaces to tabs when appropriate. Here is an ado-file that is poorly indented. Stata does not care, but you do.
