Thanks once again to Kit Baum, a new version of the -rtfutil- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -rtfutil-.

The -rtfutil- package is described as below on my website, and produces Rich Text Format (RTF) documents. The new version adds to -rtfopen- a new option -landscape-, and new option values -paper(a4land)- and -paper(usland)-, allowing the user to create landscape-oriented documents. It also adds a new module -rtfsect-, with options -default-, -paper()-, -landscape- and -margins-, allowing the user to start a new RTF section in an existing open RTF document. This allows the user to create landscape-oriented sections (comprising one or more pages) in a portrait-oriented document. I have also updated the hypertext, in the online help, connecting to Sean Burke's RTF web page, which has moved since the last -rtfutil- update. I would like to thank Friedrich Huebler for alerting me to this move.

Best wishes

      rtfutil: Utilities for writing Rich Text Format (RTF) files

      The rtfutil package is a suite of file handling utilities for
      producing Rich Text Format (RTF) files in Stata, possibly
      containing plots and tables.  These RTF files can then be
      opened by Microsoft Word, and possibly by alternative free
      word processors.  The plots can be included by inserting, as
      linked objects, graphics files that might be produced by the
      graph export command in Stata.  The tables can be included by
      using the listtab command, downloadable from SSC, with the
      handle() option.
