|Title||Accessing Stata's application support directory in OS X 10.7 and newer|

Stata stores its personal ado-files in ~/Library/Application Support/Stata. Versions of Mac OS X 10.7 and newer hide the ~/Library directory by default to prevent accidental deletion of critical files that applications may need to run. Mac OS X’s new behavior prevents users from easily accessing their personal ado-files from Stata's graphical interface and the Finder.
Here are a few methods to make the Library directory temporarily visible.
open ~/LibraryFrom Stata’s command line or a terminal, you can easily access your personal ado-files by changing to the directory that contains your ado-files:
cd "~/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado"
chflags nohidden ~/Library
