Hello all,

There was a thread a little while back in which Jesper Sorenson asked:

I have recently switched to a Mac laptop using OS-X. One thing I seem unable to do, which I can do in Windows, is run multiple instances of Stata at the same time. I'm quite addicted to such behavior since I can have different data sets open at the same time. Any solutions?

...and James Jetton answered:

Open terminal and type:
./'/Applications/Stata/Stata.bin' &
This will open a new instance of Stata (note that there is a space before the &).
There is probably an easier way, but this works...

...but I'd have imagined that the clever folks at Stata would have included some GUI way to do this. Is this the only way to run multiple instances in OSX? As far as I can tell, the issue isn't discussed in the documentation.
