But, I am not sure why this is an issue - at least with my current configuration, viewing windows show up on my bottom tool bar. So, I have a viewing window open, I click on results, viewing window disappears, I click on viewer and it comes back. In other words I can't minimize it, which I suppose would be nice, but it gets covered up by other windows when I am not using it.

This is exactly what I *don't* want. I want to be able to open up a viewer with, say, the help file for a command. I then want to be able to start typing in the command window, while still having the viewer window visible. But then I want to be able to minimize and/or put the viewer behind the results window at a later point, so I can see the results.
Got it. I agree, a "float on top" option for viewer windows would be nice. If you don't have Stata maximized, you could arrange your windows so both main Stata and viewer window are visible, but that is more work and more awkward.
