I mean that the Title bar (the top blue bar in stata window that reads
"Intercooled Stata 8.2") should mention the name of current dataset in
memory, like "Intercooled Stata 8.2 (abc.dta)" for the first window and
"2-Intercooled Stata 8.2 (lmn.dta)" or "3-Intercooled Stata 8.2 (xyz.dta)"
for other windows, if one has multiple sessions running.
No thanks, because it is not a general solution for supported Stata platforms. I am quite happy to see the file name as the header of the Results window for the active data set but putting it in the title bar that reads "intercooled Stata 8.2" becomes the menu bar on Mac. Names somewhat longer than "abc.dta" e.g.
"Intercooled Stata 8.2 - Capacity Mid-range November 2003 set 2.dta"
do not work quite so well on the menu bar! Please stick to window titling.


Best Wishes and Regards.
