From the floppy disk label: The personal mathematical equation editor for typeset quality equations in your word processing, page layout, and presentation documents. Legacy documentation can be found here.

Architecture: 68k

The documentation states it works with Mac OS versions 6 and 7. I have verified that it works with Mac OS 7 on an LC630 and with Mac OS 9 on an iMac (PPC G3).

I can not mount these disk images under MacOS 8.1

They were compressed using MacZip (to preserve the classic Mac resource forks in this archive). You should use MacZip on your Mac OS 8.1 system to extract the content correctly. They would restore to their correct and useable condition that way.

I can not mount these disk images under MacOS 8.1 with DC 6.3.3 (unknown format).

YW. I've since installed this on SSW 6.0.8 (Mini vMac - runs fine on this too) and it also brings up the "expired" notice (then runs anyway, regardless). In SSW 6 it gives you more setup options tho', such as for configuring fonts and setting your ps or inkjet printer output.

Its a great program as is. I like the choices of output, esp. as .eps which makes the output very usable in programs like QuarkXpress.

BTW. Its output seems to be print-centric that is; it doesn't look so hot on screen, but if printed (to hard copy or to PDF) then you get to see what it should look like - great.

Thank you MikeTomTom. I take your point about explaining about what to do with each item. I did not think to do that as I simply copied the original floppy disks with a couple of additional info files added. Regarding the dialog box that the program is too old, yes, I get that too on my old Mac...don't know why. I prepared the images on an LC630 running Mac OS 7, and yes I did use MacZip. Thank you again for your compliment.

Edit: Changed 'xxx 7' to 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User

Thank you for this excellent upload. I can add, it runs perfectly on Basilisk II (SSW 7.1.1) too. By "excellent" I mean, thank you for taking the trouble of saving this in Disk Copy 4.2 format and zipping into a classic Mac OS compatible .zip format - MacZip is the only (Classic Macintosh) zip utility I know of that can do this correctly, so I must assume this was also what you used Smile
[Edit] Checked and confirmed under XP - XtraStuf.mac was in there (MacZip only). Cool

By runs "perfectly" on Basilisk II, I mean that when starting up the program, it tells me that the time period for this program has expired - then it starts up and lets me edit a page anyway. Other than that it appears to run perfectly (I haven't tried it on a SSW 6.x as yet).

Also. info on what you should do with items in each disk image could be useful (as there isn't an installer). For example: in disk one you should move that (only) folder to the System's Preferences Folder.
