The (Dutch, German & US) installer sets are imaged as Disk Copy 4.2 disk image files and compressed as StuffIt 3.6 .sit archives. These can be written back to floppy disk, if necessary, as well as mounted onto a desktop and installed from there.
ClarisDraw has features more familiar with advanced vector drawing programs like FreeHand and Illustrator such as binding Text to a Path and Layers support, but lacks the typographical controls that you gain from using those high end vector drawing apps. ClarisDraw never became a serious contender in the DTP world.
It does however retain a Claris "Look & Feel" that makes ClarisDraw a breeze to use, to those familiar with other Claris software products. It's an excellent program for knocking out flyers and brochures that look fab, quickly.
