This is the April 1994 issue of MacFormat. Power Macs are just about to burst on to the scene and one can already see (with the benefit of hindsight), the beginning of the end of the Macintosh 68k platform.

What will become Windows 95 was still in development (having being pushed forward to 1995). Windows users have Windows 3.1, OS/2 or possibly the first versions of NT. Roughly 1 in 8 computers being sold are Macintosh's. Apple was the second largest computer manufacturer in the world, if my memory serves me correctly.

Things look good for the Mac but the quality of machine build is suffering under the reign of Michael Spindler and System 7 is already 3 years' old. There is word of System 7.5 coming soon and System 8 (Copland) - not what we know as System 8 - is still talked about.

This issue describes the contents of the Macintosh System Folder and how to optimize it.

The ads are, as ever, very enlightening. Do remember that the prices are in Sterling.

Top DL: MF11_img.sit, is a StuffIt 3.5 archive containing a Disk Copy 4.2 disk image of the magazine's cover floppy disk.

2nd DL: above are the untreated scans (jpeg, 300dpi) of this issue's pages. 108 in total.
If you have a comic-book reader installed, change the filename's ".zip" suffix extension to ".cbz" to view the content in book-reader form.

3rd DL: MacFormat Issue 11 as PDF, reconstructed from above scans, zipped. Use MacZip to extract, if using a classic Mac OS.

4th DL: MacFormat Issue 11 as PDF, reconstructed from 1600x1200 scans at 72dpi. The pages have been rotated to a finer degree. It has been OCR'd and bookmarks have been created. It has been saved as an ISO-image, so that it could be uploaded.

The cover disk contains:

This issue of the magazine also came with a free 64-page paperback book called "A ResEdit Primer" by Herb Goodman.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

The various programs included on the disk will run on most Macintosh emulators but likely not all. YMMV.

The PDF in download 4 has been recreated from 1600x1200 scans at 72dpi. The pages have been rotated to a finer degree. It has been OCR'd and bookmarks have been created. It has been saved as an ISO-image, so that it could be uploaded.

If anyone has the small ResEdit Primer, it would be great if they would scan it, or at least take photos of each page. I can then make a PDF of them.

If you have the text and the pictures, then a simple text file would be a great addition.

Flattening the book to scan it would ruin the spine. I did start to manually re-create it as near-exactly as possible, but couldn't find a good version fo the old MacFormat logo (only the newer versions) or the correct font to remake it. Sad

I would like to see the "ResEdit Primer" also included above, if possible.
