I can't stand the new windows system in Stata 9. With tech support's

of a session today, when Stata's docking/floating capabilities had supposedly
I'm not even sure what these new capabilities are or what they do (and after reading your message, I'm afraid to start experimenting so I can find out!). I just know that on mine, the windowing preferences are set to "Use docking guides" and "Enable ability to dock, undock or tab windows." It produces a layout that I think is as good or better as I had under 8.2. Of course, if windows start disappearing on me I may think differently.

Under manage preferences, there is an option for getting back to the factory settings.

Stata 9 has had a couple of updates, in case you haven't installed them yet.
