Question about AppleWorks 6 for mac

1 Answer

Appleworks has stopped working

I have a powerbook g4 with mac os x.   I can open appleworks, but then the little colored pinwheel comes up and starts spinning and never stops.  I have to go to force quit, and it says appleworks is not responding.
I'm pretty sure my computer doesn't have any spyware or viruses.

    I hadn't known about that-- I rapaired the permissions, but appleworks is still doing that.  I'm not sure what it means or what to do!

    I'd suggest uninstalling and then reinstalling. Then make sure you use the Apple Update function. I forget what it's called exactly, but you know what I'm talking about right?

I am working on a Mac 10.5.8 imac computer. I have used appleworks forever and dont want to let it go. EVERY time I start Appleworks 6 from the doc it crashes. I can open AW from another document but...


Appleworks is now a discontinued product and has been replaced by iWork. Its best if you start to learn how to use iWork instead since applework documents will have very limited compatibility.

I can't open a disk that contains all of my old appleworks documents using Mac OSX10.5


Appleworks support stopped at 10.4. Best thing I can tell you is to try NeoOffice or iWork.

I have apple works 6.0 on my older iMac. Is there


No, Its a copyright (r) cd. Which obviously means you can't copy it. And if you did it would be illegal. Im not accusing you or anything, I'm just giving my solution.
Sorry for an inconvenience...
Good Luck

How do I open an Appleworks Draw (.cwk) in Mac OS X 10.5.6


AppleWorks was a great program. I miss some of it's features. But there isn't anything that is going to open them up to edit them, other than appleworks. You need to convert them into something else that will work for you. I agree with the other solution that putting them into a PDF format would work. You could then open them with Adobe Illustrator, and convert them to that format.
I have heard that EazyDraw can open them, but I have not worked with it.
I know this may be a stale question, but I can offer my services to convert these files for you: jbarnhart@minespress.com

AppleWork 6.2.9 crashes everytime starting points tries to open.


I would see if there are any commands in Terminal (Mac equivalent to Command Prompt) that could do it.

Error -37


Hi, sorry you are having problems,
Well, here is what error -37 is: Code: error -37 bdNamErr Description: Bad file name (File System Error)
Basically, it is saying you cannot save a file by that name in that place....
Did you try saving it elsewhere on your Mac, like on the desktop ?
Just a side note, Apple stopped development on AppleWorks some time ago ( 3 years ) in favour of iWork. I highly recommend getting the newest version of iWork 09, it's compatible with all your Works documents and is really built for MacOS X 10.5, Leopard.
What do you mean whe you say “ Before I reimaged the machine ..” ?

Half of the page disappears


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.

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!
