To be fair (slightly), this program when saving to .eps, does at least add reference to the fonts used, which is a good thing. It just that TypeAlign is very lean on text tweaking features - the "wrapping text around a circle" mentioned in the description above is an exaggeration, to put it kindly.

What I did is just to throw away that HD image file,
good thing I have a backup copy and just replaced it}
I followed your instructions and I managed to run this program
you´re right,
... this is crap

Thanks a lot for your help!.

I also get this sometimes with bad crashes on BII. To fix, start up from a boot image. This can be a Disk Tools floppy image or a CD image or a real CD if your BII can load from real hardware CD drive. As long as the boot image has Disk First Aid on it, boot up and see if you can see the hard drive that's not booting up right now. Run Disk First Aid and let it repair any problems if any - if it can.

Good luck.

@Euryale: This one is easy to install on BII:

TypeAlign Startup
TypeAlign 1.05
TypeAlign Help

Select all three of the above files (all have red icons) and drag them over onto a closed System Folder icon, let the mouse go when the System Folder highlights (goes dark). A dialog window should then pop up and inform you that two of these files need to go into certain locations inside the System Folder.

"TypeAlign Startup" copies into the Extensions folder, "TypeAlign 1.05" is a Desk Accesory, it copies into the Apple Menu Items folder and "TypeAlign Help" copies loose into the System Folder. Click OK and reboot your current Basilisk session.

Once rebooted, TypeAlign is accessed from the Apple Menu. Help will be available from its menus once activated.

[Edit] Have spent about 10 minutes using this program and I have to say IMHO this is junk (preserved for historical reasons, I know). If you want to have 100% total control over what you do to text, use Macromedia Freehand (any version is better) the results are 1000% better. Create your fab text-to-path wonders, select in (Freehand) page and export selection to whatever format suits. Lovely.

Excuse me but how do I make this work?
Is this like a plugin that needs another program?
because it crashes Basilisk when I double click it
