I am expecting a "no you can't do that" but thought I should ask anyhow.

Is there any way to programmatically switch between preference
settings for the interface window and text colours?  I have a number
of Stata "sizes" that I use with different /k command line switches.
I'll start a new instance of Stata to alter a file prior to -merge- or
to do some other task on a dataset when I have another dataset loaded
in my "main" Stata window.

I'd love to be able to change the background colours of the secondary
review window(s) as it can become confusing if several instances are
running at once.

There is a group of -set- commands and creturn variables devoted to
windowing preferences but nothing that seems to reference window
colour preferences.

Thanks folks, and may I take this opportunity to wish Seasons Greetings to all.
