Apple Updates AppleWorks For Mac OS X

| News

Apple has released an update for AppleWorks for Mac OS X. The new version, 6.2.2, improves compatibility with Mac OS X, and does not apply to Classic users. Appleis Web site states that version 6.2.2 includes feature parity with version 6.1.2 in Classic. Also, the ReadMe notes that Mac OS X 10.1 (or greater) is recommended for the update. From that ReadMe:

This update replaces any North American English version of AppleWorks for Macintosh 6.0 or later with the North American English version of AppleWorks 6.2.2 for Mac OS X 10.1 and AppleWorks 6.1.2 for Mac OS 8.1 through 9.x. (AppleWorks 6.2.2 for Mac OS X 10.1 and AppleWorks 6.1.2 for Mac OS 8.1 through 9.x have a common feature set but are optimized for the appropriate operating system).

This update is intended for users of AppleWorks on Mac OS X 10.1. If you are using an earlier version of Mac OS X, Apple recommends that you first upgrade your OS to 10.1 before using this updater. If you already have AppleWorks 6.1.2 and you are not running Mac OS X then you do not need this update.

If you previously installed AppleWorks 6 on your computer using the custom installation option, choosing only the "AppleWorks 6 application" and omitted the writing tools, re-run the installer, choose Custom Install once again, and choose to install the writing tools. This will ensure the AppleWorks 6.2.2 updater will perform properly.

You can download the updater from Appleis AppleWorks Web site.
