 > 2 - Command window disappearing

A few days ago I raised this issue and thought I found the solution (with factory settings in preferences). This solution works as far as I don't try to increase the size of the command window (while reducing the results window). I soon as I make this change, my original problem comes back: the command window disappears if I click in the menu or in the results. I need to click on "window>command" in the menu but, even in this case, I can't have the menu and the command line available at the same time.

Would you have any idea?
I hesitated to answer this, as it seems many aspects window behavior under Stata 9 seem to depend on the *combination* of various windowing preference settings and initially arriving at an acceptable combination was quite confusing to me also. That said, here's a stab at a simple step that might help:

Try checking the "make windows float" box under the Prefs menu -> general preferences -> windowing tab.

This should prevent the main window (with menu) from obscuring the command window.
