First and easiest solution is to start the program from your application folder. The icon will re-appear in the dock. Now you either CTRL-click on the icon and select "keep in dock" (or simmilar, I'm on german OS) or you drag the icon to a different location in the dock which will also keep it there.

Lost my appleworks icon on my screen


Hi When you have started your computer press command (apple key) and F for making a search. Type "appleworks" in the search field. Look at the list that appears to find your software. Once You find it create a new "Alias" and put it on your desktop. -or you can find the software in the "Applications" -folder.

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.

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.

Mail Merge won't print


AppleWorks is a quirky and hopelessly outdated product. I am aware that a few people have an extreme fondness for it however.
It should only have taken minutes to import data, but don't do it in AppleWorks - they stopped making it years ago and it is unsupported and non-standard.
I have just taken two AppleWorks databases, - one older and one newer that needed to be combined. I exported them as tab delimited text and then imported them into Excel (You could use Apple Numbers - the modern equivalent to AppleWorks). Because the to db's had different headers, I imported them into two different Excel docs first and moved the columns around so the matched first, them copy each column over to the 'master' excel sheet.
You can either use the basic database tools in Excel, or once your data is combined and in this kind of data form, it is easy to import a .xls, or .csv into a new database program, such as Filemaker.
If you do copy over the data to Excel, any merge function - for label printing etc. has to be done in Word (or at least up to Word 2004). I was thrown by this until I realised you have to do this. Once a merge doc is set up with the right labels, it worked beautifully. Typical MS though it is a wholly unintuitive process.
Copy and importing data should be done with attention to care obviously. Make sure you have your original AW files backed up before you start.

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!

It appears the application was deleted or has become corrupted. The dock is just a shortcut, but if youre running 10.4 go to  the spotlight search window on the top left, try a search for the application.


Hope this helps.
