I use Stata 10 with Mac OS 10.5.2, and I have some practical problems :

- Is there a way to change the font size in the review and variables
windows. When I Ctrl click in those windows, the local menu has no
item "font size" contrarily to the other windows (as results,
command, review or do-file editor).
Yes, I don't see an option. Other window font sizes can be changed in the preferences dialogs.




- In the do-file editor, drag and drop seems not to work. When I try
to use it, Stata is freezing (the multicolor wheel is turning
endlessly).
I never tried drag and drop. I usually do shift-command-D from the doedit window. When I tried dragging a selected set of commands from my doeditor window, only the first line is copied, and nothing is executed. Pressing return executes that line without crashing.




- when I type a command in the command window (for instance "tab
var1"), if I click in the variables window to select "var1", "var1"
remains highlighted in blue. Thus when I use the return key to
execute the command, it makes "tab var1 var1", which is not what I
want (and in other cases may be a syntax error). To avoid that, I
have to reclick in the command window before using the return key. I
think the behavior of Stata was different in version 9.
I think this is an FAQ:

Are these problems similar for other Mac users ? And, if yes, is it
possible to improve them ?

Thanks
