macdrawii.sit (1.33 MB)
MD5: 5945ce02131f2fd8cb3d6143fc44f785
For System 6.x - System 7.0 - 7.6

An old vector based drawing application. What's new in this version compared to the previous one?
- Create presentations
- Post notes
- Check your spelling with the Spelling Checker
- Save your color documents in Color PICT2
- Use new printing options to print notes, slides, handouts, and color documents.
- Use the new MacDraw II Help System
- And zoom!! dammit now you can zoom!

The file contains the following floppy disks:
- MacDraw II Program
- Dictionaries and Templates
- Introductory Tour (bootable)
- Advanced Tour (bootable)

All floppies are in DiskCopy 4.2 format compressed in friendly pre-5.x stuffit format.

To install just copy the application to the hard disk. If you want to use the MacDraw II Options file and the Main Dictionary file, they must reside either in the same location as the MacDraw II application or inside the System Folder. If you have a customized User Dictionary don't replace it with the one in the floppy.

Architecture: 68k

Requires Macintosh Plus, Macintosh SE or Macintosh II families
Two 800k drives (hard disk recommended)
System Software 6.0 or later recommended

Claris included a printed "Important Update" document with MacDraw II 1.1v1 (which most likely also applies to 1.1v2) which recommends use of System 6.0 & Finder 6.1. The document says System 4.3 & Finder 6.0 and System 4.2 & Finder 6.0 will work but are NOT recommended because there may be problems while zooming and when working on large and complex objects. System 4.1 & Finder 5.5 (and earlier) are not supported at all.
