Lotus 1-2-3 was Lotus' attempt to break into the Macintosh market. It was more successful at laying the groundwork for all other GUI versions than it was for sales on the Macintosh where Excel continued to dominate. It runs well on my SE/30 using 7.5.5, on my PB3400 under 8.1. but will not run under 9.1. The images will need be burned to floppy as I had difficulty getting the installer to recognize mounted disk images.

Export formats:
Lotus 1-2-3 Mac, 1-2-3 DOS WK3, 1-2-3 DOS WK1, 1-2-3 DOS WK3/FM3, Excel 2.2, Text

Import formats:

I booted my 3400 with an 8.1 disk and 1-2-3 ran fine under that OS. Checked again under 9.1 and still no joy.

I do wish my scanner was working, I'd put the manual up. Still, it's fairly straight forward SS & the help system is actually useful.

Sorry for accidentially deleting the previous screenshot!
The program seems to be of some use still, as ten users downloaded the pre-installed image until now.

Glad it's of use.

Two more bits - this is version 1.1 which was the last version released by Lotus IIUC. Also it does not run for me under OS 9.1 on a Powerbook 3400, so the SheepShaver information is good to know.

All in all a much better effort than Jazz, but far too late as Excel had the market locked up tight.

Thanks for the hint. A hopefully better screenshot is now provided.

Hint: Cmd-Shift-3 will do a screenshot. Otherwise grab or another screenshot utility.
