various windows. My initial reaction to them disappearing was irritation.
Now I'm wondering why this new feature of floating windows was introduced.
What is the point of having the windows (command window, variable window,
review window) moving around and disappearing.
What am I missing?
I put my review and variable on the right side and docked them there. Stata

to have an entire column on the right side which can show more variables or

One disappointment I have with Stata 9's multiple do file editing windows is
that they are not arranged with tabs, similar to what WinEdt does.
