Looks like iWorks is the only way to convert all of my old AppleWorks documents for Lion.

Anyone know of any other alternatives?

Can't convert to Office documents.

Appleworks may be a little dated, but this workhorse can still carry out a variety of tasks relatively easily. In comparison with Pages, which isn't exactly user-friendly, Appleworks word processing is simple and direct, and the whole suite of operations work with one another relatively harmoniously. Simple spreadsheets are easy to author and edit. I actually use this more than the iWork combo.

I still grieve the death of AppleWorks. iWork/Pages is not an adequate replacement. Also Pages fails the Mum test. My Mum finds it baffling and unusable but she had no problem with AppleWorks and has no problem with MS Office.

I downloaded this version as my Appleworks kept changing the font from the default, and I keep having to change it back again. The 6.2.9 was supposed to help for this, according to a comment I found on the web. It didn't: worse, a lot of the time it seems to have a delayed reaction to my typing. What do I do? I have a OSX 10.2.8.

Every time I cut and paste in world procession, this version -- and the older ones -- reverts the pasted material to Helvetica. Work around is easy enough, just select the material and change the font back, but it is annoying.

Anybody know if this is gonna be fixed? Ever?

This is a general problem with OS X. Typing is delayed in Appleworks, REALbasic, Script Editor, Internet Explorer, AOL Instant Messanger (If you have 10.2 or higher and you're still using AOL Instant Messanger instead of iChat then you're a real stupid person), Mail, and some other useless or not well know programs. As far as I can tell, this problem comes from either having a Kensington keyboard driver installed or a setting messed up in OnyX or Apple Extended Keyboard PrefPane.

Updated just fine on my Pismo 500 with 1 gig of ram system 10.3
I first updated the system 10 version and then the system 9 vesrion on a different partion on the Power Book drive. Apple works is the only app in the system 9 partion.
It's the program of choice, I really wish Apple would make it more powerfull as I hate even having Office on my Computer, but there are some cases where only MS will open a certain document. Appleworks will do about 80% of what needs to be done. For Data Base I like Filemaker and wish Apple had not split his off.
If your having problems with the updater not finding Appleworks make sure you downloaded the US Canadian Version not the English International version a easy late night mistake. Again the beauty of Appleworks I messed uo, it uninstalled the English International version. I reloaded my original disk and got the right updater and everything just worked.

Opening dotDoc WORDs, Geoff,
Have you tried Nisus Writer Express, a Cocoa app ? Nisus open all those darned dotDoc attachments, I even forget I am in Word - I'm not, I'm in NWEx.

We cannot get the v.629 AppleWorks in England, not so sad - NWEx is streets ahead in Panther.
Pity about my old ApplewWorks files.

ps Outside-USA suffers again. I did write to Apple Feedback. Why USA only?
pps I really must tell David Pogue ;-)

Please help. I download the update file onto my desktop. Then I double click on the file. The file decompresses to: AppleWorks6.2.9Updater.smi. Then I double click on that and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help!

I have the same problem! I can't find any solution to this one. Let me know if you come up with a solution.

I had the same problem, but finally got it to work by putting the .smi file into the "Startup Items" folder in the "System Folder" (the one for Classic). Then I restarted Classic using the Classic System Preference (System Preferences >Classic>Start/Stop>Restart). After OS 9 started, the installer opened with the license window and everything proceeded smoothly from there. OS is 10.3.2.

Has anyone had a problem with the download. I have tried twice and the download hangs while displaying the message: "Displaying software license agreement." I am using 10.3.2.

run Permissions Repair in Disk Utility, and then maybe run RebuildDesktopX as well.

can't hurt, and both will likely help.

Every time I try to set preferences to show fonts in their typeface, the program quits. What am I doing wrong? I am on 10.3.2.
