Dear Gary:

Thanks a lot for your help. Your solution works.

(I also thank you for the other answer concerning the font. I tried the one you suggested and it's fine now).

Best regards

Hervé

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.

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.
