Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

With Aldus FreeHand version 3.0, new features now included re-sizable color, style, and layer panels including an Attributes menu, tighter precision of both the existing tools and aligning of objects. Compound Paths and text could be converted to paths, applied to an ellipse, or made vertical. In 1992 with a 3.1 upgrade, FreeHand now supported pressure-sensitive drawing and improved element manipulation plus adding more import/export options. In early 1993, the final of the 3 series reached version 3.11, supporting the TruMatch digital color-matching system, built-in support for Aldus Fetch and object-oriented PICT previews for EPS files.
At the time, Aldus FreeHand 3.x was arguably; The best vector based drawing application ever made!

The 4th & 5th DL's above, US English install sets, consists of Disk Copy 4.2 floppy images compressed as StuffIt 3.6 .sit archive for better backwards compatibility.

Done. I included & moved MCP's zipped copies to this page and the new version 2.0 page. The .sit copies I uploaded are conversions of MCP's uploads. Converted from DiskDup+ & MacZip to Disk Copy 4.2 & SuffIt 3.6 (Mac SSW 6 compatibility) for better backwards support. I included the .zips as some may prefer these to .sit files (perhaps could go?).

[Edit] Discovered I had vers. 3.11 disk images also, so added to the page. This completes the 3.x series.

My intention now is to move the English 3.1 install set to this page and have separate pages for the remaining two titles on that page.

Me, thinks the same.

PPC code? No (I removed). Perhaps even more interesting, the top DL is not an English copy Smile

It's a pre-installed copy and contains texts typed in this manner:

  • Kontroll: Systemkonfiguration
  • torsdag 24 mars 1994 13.22.07
  • Du kan avbryta kontrollen genom att hålla ner kommandotangenten och trycka på punkt.
  • Systemversion: 7.16
  • Internminne totalt: 67108864 bytes.
  • Maskinmodell: (Okänd)24
  • Processor: 68040
  • Matematikprocessor installerad.
  • Systemet använder Color QuickDraw.
  • Systemmappen heter: Systemmapp
  • Vald skrivartyp: LaserWriter
  • Cacheminnet är på. Cacheminnet är32K stort.

I'm not sure of the language, perhaps Swedish? [Edit] It is, I checked the version info under ResEdit. It is Country code: 07 - Sweden. - I changed that info above, too.

There is a better full install, English language version 3.1 over here. My intention now is to move the English 3.1 install set to this page and have separate pages for the remaining two titles on that page.

As of 1992, are you sure this application contains PPC code?
