    "Not Bad"

    May 22, 2003   |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: AppleWorks X 6.2.7

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It's not bad...however, it seems a little behind on interface, and it would be very helpful if it was rewritten..now I don't want to put a burden on Apple and all, with their music service and so on in mind..but this program does need a little touch of paint to look good and work like an OS X native application. Besides that, it works well. Maybe multiple selections should be supported. I've already seen it in Nisus Writer Express and Microsoft Word - let's spread it.

    "Major bug in 6.2.7"

    May 19, 2003   |   By MacGod2

    Version: AppleWorks X 6.2.7

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have to re-iterate what others have said below: Do not "upgrade" to 6.2.7!

    I also have been hit by the right-side clipping bug. It eliminates the last four letters or so, regardless of what the margins are set to.

    Claris Works used to be a fabulours program, but it has stagnated as Appleworks.

    My feature request:

    • Scroll Wheel Support
    • Better MS Office import/export (it's glitchy)
    • Beef up the drawing component. Transparency (even basic transparency) and rotateable text (without bitmapped effect) would be nice
    • More speed, captain!
    • Fix misc glitches. Aside from the right-side printing problem, I have had trouble printing anything under "best" quality ever since AppleWorks went to OS X. It would consitently screw up the last line on the page.
    • Better control over fotters and page numbering, so I could for example number all pages except the first four

    C'mon, Apple, we know you can put out quality software!

    "Rubbish"

    May 15, 2003   |   By fdmdixon

    Version: AppleWorks X 6.2.7

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    AppleWorks 6 has been a disaster from the start. It's the only program that I have that's more sluggish than Word X. Simple actions like copying and moving text cause a spinning beachball on a G4 500. A true embarrasment for Apple.
