Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Aldus IntelliDraw was a drawing app with innovative tools to help users create symmetric and connected shapes. Version 2.0 included a library of "smart art." It was very fast on 68030 Macs and pretty memory efficient by today's standards (2.5 MB min; worked even better with 4-6 MB).

One thing I distinctly remember when using it in the early 1990's: it could open and render most EPS clip art. Combined with Adobe Type Manager this meant you could use EPS artwork and print high resolution output to a non-PostScript device like a StyleWriter.

The installer does not require a serial code, and you can run the installer without making physical floppies. Just make sure all disk images are mounted before you launch the installer.

The dc42.sit file has disk images made with Disk Copy 4.2.

I've briefly tested this in SheepShaver and it seems to run fine.

Third DL is a pre-installed copy for ease of use with emulators - meant for beginners only Wink

  If anyone needs me to I can create and upload an archive of DiskCopy 4.2 images.

@taylordesign: If you are able to do this; Yes please. Add them to this page, thanks.

Actually, for Mac floppy disk images, genuine Disk Copy 4.2 images are the preferred format. If you have the ability to create these, all the better.
