You are asking Stata to not reveal all of the main window if it overlaps  the do-file editor window.  But the current behavior is standard Mac windowing behavior: clicking into a window brings it to the front and gives it focus.  In fact, what you ask would be self-defeating. If the do-file editor partly overlapped the variables pane (or review pane) but wouldn't go behind them, how would you access the the part of the pane that is hidden?

The solution to your problem is to separate the windows. Use SizeUp or one of the other window arrangers available at MacUpdate.

Hi all,

This is driving me insane- if I have a .do file open, and attempt to
"drag-and-drop" commands or vars, the .do file editor goes behind the
main screen, and none of the general preferences have had any effect.
I don't think there was a fix for this in the floating window
environment in Stata 11, but is there any way I can pin the editor in
Stat 12?

thanks!

Andrew
