Hi Alan, thanks for the reply. I guess it's something I'll get used to!

(PS. While I'm on, just wanted to say how useful and accessible I've found your "A Gentle Introduction to Stata" book. It's been a terrific resource for those of us in my Centre where we are moving over to Stata from SPSS.)

My understanding is that it would be difficult to add a big window to hold all the individual windows as is done under the Windows operating system. I found this frustrating initially, but now almost like it. I can put the five individual windows in different places so they don'w overlap with other programs I'm running at the same time. I have two monitors and agree that moving the entire set from one monitor to the other is a bit tedious. Perhaps Stata will offer the single big window at a latter date as an option. Given the differences between Mac and Window operating systems, I don't think this would be easy for them to implement on Macs. .

> Many thanks Dave. I already have that checked though and its working fine. The problem for me is that Stata appears as five separate windows which is a pain if I just want to reposition it on my screen. I just thought there might be an option somewhere that snaps the five windows together as in the Windows version but it doesn't seem that there is.

In contrast to the Windows version, all of the Stata windows in the Mac version are free floating. Is there any way of being able to snap them together/anchor them to each other as with the Windows version?
