Anyone figured out how to get such a tool in Textpad to switch to the
currently running Stata, rather than starting a new version?
Surely, if you want to do that, you simply click on the icon for the currently running Stata on the icon bar at the bottom of your screen. So nothing is gained by having a TextPad tool to do this. Or am I missing something?
