Dear George,

I'm afraid that people won't understand the context of your question -- that
is, that you're using the Rcmdr GUI, but that the crux of your problem as do
with changing the names of variables in the data editor using R on a Mac. 

(As you know, I'm not a Mac user and unable to answer that question. I did
answer the first part of your question in our private email correspondence,
which is that the New Data Set window goes away only after the data editor
is closed.)

I hope that, with this clarification, a Mac R user will come to your
