Dear Stata people, could you please direct us to the information source (book or internet) about basic window management in Stata 8 ?

I have had the same maddening frustration when I installed Stata 8 2 months ago. I didn't know where to find the info to address that problem in Stata's books nor on the internet.
There must be a good reason for this change relative to previous Stata versions, is there?
Although Stata 8 is a great improvement leap over previous versions, the new windowing is odd to me and Tobias at least.
A related windowing issue is that drop-down menus for commands (data management, statistics, graphics, etc.) conflict with and will appear behind the Review and Variables windows.

My own "stupid solution" to your and my problem, Tobias, was to make the Stata window smaller to discover the Review and Variables windows behind the Stata window, then move them by hand in front of the Stata 8 window, then put the Stata 8 window in full-size mode , then resize each window as I did in previous versions and save my preferences. My "haphazardous solution" has the inconvenience of hiding part of the pull-down command menus...

Hi statalisters,

This is probably a Stata8 low level question, but I am getting mad!.
Today I got and installed Intercooled Stata8 but the Review and Variables windows are hidden and I cannot find them. I tried to activate them using the Windows menus and other trick, which worked in Stata7 but I am unable to get them. Any sugestion?

Sorry!.
