I have the variable and review windows docked on the right hand side so to reduce the width I just move these across to the required width and then use "copy as Picture". This reduces the width.

Regards

Karl

The "Copy as Picture" function copies the entire width of the Results
window, including empty space to the right of a table. When this
picture is pasted to another application, it may require cropping on
the right side. Is it possible to copy only the text and lines that
make up the table in Stata, without the additional space in the
Results window?

A new feature of Stata 10 for Windows and Macintosh users allows you to copy
output from Stata and paste it into an application such as a word processor
and have the output appear exactly as it does in Stata. Selecting Edit > Copy
as Picture will copy selected text from the Results or Viewer windows as a
metafile such as a Windows metafile (WMF) or Macintosh PICT. When pasted into
an application such as Word, the pasted text will appear exactly as it does in
Stata and can be edited if your application allows editing of WMF or PICT.
Copy as Picture is well suited for copying tables from Stata if used for
displaying output. However, it can't be used as a replacement for copying a
table from Stata to an application such as Excel as a way of entering data.
