Re: st: Windowing preferences
I arrange my command and results window without regards to the review and
variables window. The review and variables windows do overlap my results
window a bit, but I put them over toward the right, to minimize the
interference. Then, when they get in the way I do CTRL-9 to make them
disappear -- and CTRL-9 again to make them reappear when I need them back.
The review and command windows are always in front, and their locations are
independent of the Stata window. So you can have them partly or completely
away from the Stata window, depending on their relative sizes.
I hope this is useful.

I'm running v.8 on Windows, and I'm not happy with the way
various windows behave, but I can't figure out a way to change the
aspects of the windowing behavior that I don't like. Generally, what I
would like would be the capacity to make a window "be on top." That is, I
normally have the review and variable windows on the left, and the results
window on the right. Often, I might like to enlarge the size of the font
in the results window, and drag the results window over to the left so
that all of the results window is visible. However, as I do this, the
lefthand side of the results window "goes underneath" the review and
variables windows and becomes invisible. I would think I could solve this
with a window preference like "Results window always on top," or "cascade
windows." I also am frustrated with similar problems with 1) the viewer
window; and 2) with the dialogue boxes that come up under the Statistics
menu: they both end up with the review and variables windows covering the
lefthand side of the window of interest.
How do other folks manage these issues? All I can think to do is to keep
the variables and review windows closed except as needed. Perhaps there
are other approaches to using the windows?
The irony about this is that I was for many years a generalized anti-GUI
fanatic and have now come to be something of a convert.
