Conversion of AppleWorks documents e. March 12, 3: And the following is a. I already thought about converting all older version documents using MacLink to AW 6 or something else, but apparently, MacLink is no longer available, too. Well, 2 answers came in on another bulletin, 1st by fosnola: Ask a question Reset. Here is the way I defined the export dialog: If you have Pages part of iWorkit can open.

Main article: Macintosh The Macintosh project started in late with Jef Raskin , who envisioned an easy-to-use, low-cost computer for the average consumer. In September , Raskin began looking for an engineer who could put together a prototype. Bill Atkinson , a member of the Apple Lisa team, introduced Raskin to Burrell Smith , a service technician who had been hired earlier that year. Many basic tasks that required more operating system knowledge on other systems could be accomplished by mouse gestures and graphic controls on a Macintosh.
This would differentiate it from its contemporaries such as MS-DOS , which use a command-line interface consisting of terse, abbreviated textual commands.
In January , Steve Jobs completely took over the Macintosh project. He was able to conserve precious ROM space by writing routines in assembly language code optimized with "hacks," or clever programming tricks. The icons of the operating system, which represent folders and application software , were designed by Susan Kare , who later designed the icons for Microsoft Windows 3.
Apple aggressively advertised their new machine. The Macintosh quickly outsold its more sophisticated but much more expensive predecessor, the Lisa. Apple quickly developed a product named MacWorks , which allowed the Lisa to emulate Macintosh system software through System 3, by which time it had been discontinued as the rebranded Macintosh XL. Mac OS 8. This architecture also allows for a completely graphical OS interface at the lowest level without the need for a text-only console or command-line mode: boot time errors, such as finding no functioning disk drives, are communicated to the user graphically, usually with an icon or the distinctive Chicago bitmap font and a Chime of Death or a series of beeps.
Main article: Macintosh clone Several computer manufacturers over the years made Macintosh clones that were capable of running Mac OS. These machines normally ran various versions of classic Mac OS.
Steve Jobs ended the clone-licensing program after returning to Apple in Support for Macintosh clones was first exhibited in System 7. Both file systems are otherwise compatible. The data fork contains the same sort of information as a file in other file systems, such as the text of a document or the bitmaps of an image file.
An executable file might consist only of resources including code segments with an empty data fork, while a data file might have only a data fork with no resource fork. On the other hand, these forks would provide a challenge to interoperability with other operating systems.
In copying or transferring a Mac OS file to a non-Mac system, the default implementations would simply strip the file of its resource fork. Most data files contained only nonessential information in their resource fork, such as window size and location, but program files would be inoperative without their resources.
This necessitated such encoding schemes as BinHex and MacBinary , which allowed a user to encode a dual-forked file into a single stream, or inversely take a single stream so-encoded and reconstitute it into a dual-forked file usable by Mac OS.
