I have one additional question about multiple instances. When I start
them they are not clearly identified as being a second or third

True. Daniel suggested duplicating the Stata application, renaming it, and launching a that as a second instance. One certainly could do that. Placing each running copy of Stata in its own Space in OS X 10.5.x might help keep them straight as well.



In addition, the scripts you
indicated to run do files from the editor (very helpful) do not
distinguish the different instances - at least I couldn't find a logic
to it. Is there any way to point a script at a specific instance and
to easily discern which instance of Stata is which?
Glad you found the scripts helpful. Unfortunately, I do not know how to specify which instance of Stata should be associated with which script. (The Mac OS, unlike Windows, is not designed to support multiple instances of the same application. Rather, the philosophy is multiple documents (windows) per application. Unfortunately, Stata doesn't work this way.)
