Software Application Notes

If you have problems printing from a specific application, it may be a problem in that application.
We recommend that you read the ReadMe that came with each application.

PhotoEnhancer Plus for Apple (PictureWorks)

PhotoEnhancer doesn’t open compressed TIFF images. To use a compressed TIFF image
in PhotoEnhancer, try opening it with another application, then copy and paste it into a PhotoEnhancer document. For more information, contact PictureWorks.

Stencil It! & Web It! (Kaetron)

Shapes created using the Polygon tool will print only on the first page of a multipage document. For more information contact Kaetron.

Some Installers also install PowerPC based Software.

Another recent eBay find.

For me, the following software won't run in Sheep (or Mac OS 9, respectively) :
Stencil It (crashes) , PrintMaster ("due to an error") ,
Runs in Sheep: PictureWorks
Runs in Bas: Stencil It
