Question about AppleWorks 6 for mac
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?
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!
