In Windows, at least, there is a way to do this, but it is ugly and potentially dangerous.

That said, Stata 8.x stored its windowing preferences in the registry. So you can set the first set of preferences up, then run the windows program -regedit- to export the [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stata\Stata8.0] registry tree into, say "pref1.reg"; then set up the second set, then use -regedit- to export that tree again, into, say, "pref2.reg".

Then you can double-click on pref1.reg or pref2.reg to set the first or second set of preferences, then start Stata.

(As always, be sure you know what you are doing, and back up your registry, before you start messing with it. If you kill your system, don't blame me!)

Dear all,

is it by any means possible to convince my - I admit, slightly
outdated - Stata 8.2/SE to store or even better, to recall more than
one windowing layout? I am using it with a notebook at a resolution of
1024x768 px but every now and then I would place it in a docking
station where I have an external monitor which runs at an res of
1600x1200px. So I would like to be able to make the windowing
dependent on my viewing device. Anyone got any ideas?

Thank you for your replies!
