Graphical user interface (GUI)

Dialog box
Review window
Dialog box
Variables window
Dialog box
Dialog box
Graph window
  1. The Review window has been redesigned. It now shows the return code of each previous command and highlights errors. From the window, you can now select multiple commands—not just single ones—to save or execute.
  2. The Variables window has been redesigned. It nows shows the storage type and display format for each variable in addition to the variable’s name and label. You can change any of these from the window, including the name; just right-click.
  3. Stata’s Viewer has been redesigned. In addition to an all-new look, it has a Forward button and the search capability is now built in rather than provided by a dialog box.
  4. The Graph window has been redesigned. In addition to providing an interactive editor, under Windows, it now allows tabs. You can have multiple graph windows, each containing one graph, or fewer windows—even one—containing multiple graphs.
  5. You can copy and paste from Stata’s Results and Viewer windows in AS-IS mode, meaning that you can include Stata output in documents and slides looking exactly as it looked on your screen.
  6. Multiple Do-file Editors can now be opened simultaneously; just click on the files in the Open dialog. (Unix users: you too can now open multiple Do-file Editors.)
  7. Concerning dialogs,

    1. Stata now uses child dialogs, making dialogs for Stata commands easier to use.
    2. Programmers can program child dialogs, too; see help dialog programming.
    3. Graph dialogs have an all-new look that makes specifying the most important items and options easier, yet provides access to even more of graph’s capabilities.
    4. Dialogs that need matrices now allow the user to create the matrix via a matrix-input child dialog and to show that new matrix in the original dialog box after it has been created.
    5. Dialogs that need formats now allow the user to specify the format via a format builder.
    6. Data from ODBC sources can now be accessed via a dialog.
    7. Dialogs in Windows now scale with Microsoft Windows’ DPI settings.
    8. Dialogs now load faster.
  8. Stata for Unix has an all new, more modern GUI.
