Question about AppleWorks 6 for mac

1 Answer

Typing lag There is significant lag time between when I type and when the letters appear on the screen. I attempted to Uninstall Appleworks 6.2.9. I repeatedly got messages about being unable to completely uninstall as other programs were running (they were not) and using/sharing Appleworks 6. I re-Installed Appleworks 6, but I cannot open my documents. I am currently writing many documents in Appleworks; I need them now! What should I do next? Thanks! Sue Powerbook G4-OS10.4.11

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!

Garmin nuvi 1200 wont let me type the right letters

Try recalibrating the touchscreen. The procedure can be found here:

Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then push down on the power button to turn the unit on. Release the power button when the Garmin logo appears. Continue to press on the upper left-hand corner of the screen until you see the calibration screen.

Press each dot to recalibrate the screen.

Once completed the Nuvi will display Calibration Complete

Typing delay

I would suspect that you maybe have spyware and malware issue's. you need to get that process list down to an average of 35-40.

spybot is an excellent application to help in a situation like this. Search for it on google.

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AppleWorks is a quirky and hopelessly outdated product.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.
