This app works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac II

• Download #1 is Disk Copy 4.2 images of the original install disks for Canvas 3.0.4 together with the updater to version 3.0.5.

• Download #2 is the updater to 3.0.6.

• Download #3 are the updated tools for 3.0.6. Install these in the Canvas Tools folder after updating the program itself.

• Download #4 is unreleased ("non-shipping") tools provided by Deneba. These include a Wacom driver, the ability to disable Undo (to save memory), and artistic effects such as Concentric Circles, Cylinder, Doughnuts, and Fractals. Stuffit 1.5.1 format.

• Download #5 is updated PPD (Page Printer Description) files for printers including the LaserWriter IIg and IIf.

• Download #6 are sample Canvas Art files distributed on AppleLink by Deneba, not present on install disks.

Like version 3.5.4, there is a date bomb whereby the application expires in 2004. The fix is the same and is included in this download for convenience. To install Canvas 3.0.4 you will need to reset the clock on your Mac (1992 works). Set the clock back again and apply the date fix and you are set to go. This version does run under SSW 9 but the menus are messed up; however they are still usable with some practice.

Interestingly the Wacom file in "non-shipping tools" has UltraPaint creator code and icon.

I'm trying to figure out how compatible all the external tools are between UltraPaint, artWORKS and (early) Canvas. The apps themselves share a lot of code and resources.
