Just a last comment: My solution to this is to iconify the graph window. But then again, I also use the mouse focus option of KDE.

Best,

Thanks Alan for answering. Your "mouse focus" solution works well enough for me. Just one point about the second workaround:

A second workaround would be to take advantage of the capability of some window managers to have multiple X window desktops. Simply move Stata to (or start it in) an alternate desktop and let it run while performing whatever work is desired in the original desktop.

This doesn't work for me here. The graph window pops up in my working-desktop, not in the Stata-desktop. Maybe there is some silly setting in my rather old KDE-environment.

Anyway, I am happy with the "mouse focus" solution.

Ulrich Kohler (ukohler@sowi.uni-mannheim.de) wroteI have a Do-File which produces some graphs. I like to run the Do-File while doing something else in another program. For each graph produced by the Do-File, I got the graph window on the top of my screen, forcing me to ALT+TAB back to the other program. The same happens with every new graph produced by the Do-File. The Do-File produces 137 graphs. This makes it almost impossible to do anything except sitting in front of the screen and looking how Stata produces one graph after another. I wonder if it is possible to let Stata open the graph window somewhere in the backround.We probably could add a setting to tell Stata to not bring the Graph window to the front upon the creation of a new graph. However, there are a few different workarounds I can think of that should help Ulrich. Ulrich could set his window manager to use "mouse focus", where the window in which the mouse currently resides is the window with the focus. Then, he could push the graph window way off to the side after it popped up the first time to get it out of the way. He should then be able to continue working in whatever applications he wishes since the mouse will remain over them and they will retain the focus. A second workaround would be to take advantage of the capability of some window managers to have multiple X window desktops. Simply move Stata to (or start it in) an alternate desktop and let it run while performing whatever work is desired in the original desktop. Finally, a Stata-only solution would be to do as Ulrich suggests and -set graphics off-. Then, rather than using . translate @Graph xyz.eps, replace Ulrich could have his graph commands save a graph and use it in the -translate- command: . set graphics off . graph y1 x, saving(mygraph, replace) . translate mygraph.gph mygraph.eps, replace . graph y2 x, saving(mygraph, replace) . translate mygraph.gph mygraph.eps, replace etc.* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
