Question about AppleWorks 6 for mac

2 Answers

Half of the page disappears

When I use AppleWorks, I'll be in the middle of the document, and the top of the page goes blank. If I scroll down, more and more of the text disappears. Why is this? What can I do to stop it?

    When you say the text disappears, do you mean it disappears from the display, or it is physically removed from the document?

    Does the text disappear when you are doing nothing, or when you are taking some sort of action?

    If you take a screen shot of the screen after the text "disappears," does that screen shot show the missing text or not?

    What OS and model of machine are you running?

    This sounds like a graphics issue rather than content actually disappearing. AppleWorks is an outmoded piece of software now and this issue may be related to an incompatibility with the computer you are using it in.

    Which Mac do you have and what operating system does it use?

    You can find the operating system number by clicking on the apple in the top left in the menu bar on the screen and choosing About this Mac

Hi, Sorry to hear your having problems,
Well, if you save and quit then re-open the document, is the text back ? Or is it Gone Gone Gone.....
I suspect that the text is there.....
Which means it is a simple redraw problem. A redraw problem on a Mac happens when the processor on the Mac is overloaded and is no longer able to provide the necessary processing power to display the necessary elements fast enough. Also, if you have a machine with shared Ram as Video Ram, this could be a very common problem...
So, what Mac Model do you have, Speed, Ram and Disk size and available space.
If this is the case, it's not a major problem, you just have to make sure you don't run too many apps at the same time, like no other application running when you are in AppleWorks.

It sounds like a render issue. AppleWorks is ancient. Export your data as text delimited and import into Excel, or better, Filemaker - both of which are currently supported. AppleWorks is not.

SOURCE: typing lag

I dont normally work much with mac's, but are you able to type fine in office- word for example? Is the computer slow normally, even without running programs? What it could is that you have to much stuff on your computer taking up space. Try to put all your photos on dics or on an external hard-drive and then get rid of them off yr computer, also get rid of any music files that you may have stored- have them on CD's as well. This should fix the problem, but if not, uninstall any unessesary programs. Hope this can help... be interseted if it does... get back to me if you can!

Hi
I assume by "Appleworks wp" you mean "Pages"
- have you tried opening it from within the software? By first starting the application and then via the "file" menu select "Open..."?
Hope this helps

Feeds a blank sheet of paper after every print job


check and see if your cursor goes to the next page after your last written one in your document. If so then backspace to your last written page so that the blank page disappears because having this page the computer takes it as part of the document but because there is nothing on it a blank page comes out.

Have you tried repairing disk permissions? Go to the Utility folder in Applications and start up Disk Utility. Click on the second icon at the top left, then click on Repair Permissions. Repair Disk at the bottom far right will be grayed out.

If that does not correct the problem:

Quit AppleWorks.
Go to your user/Documents folder, and remove the AppleWorks User Data folder, put it in the trash, and empty the trash.
Do the same to your user/Library/Preferences/Appleworks folder
Do the same to the com.apple.appleworks.plist
logout and log back in as the same user. (not really necessary but I like an almost fresh start)
Open Appleworks, and make a NEW document and try to save it.
Open an existing document and try to save it.

If either of these will not work, let me know.
