The idea behind this application is wonderful and so I will try to help with some suggestions: 1. Make the background more simple and less distracting. 2. Allow the word processing window to be adjustable in size. 3. Specify where the files are being saved to. I still can't find them. Keep up the good work.

To the developer: Please sort this under "demo", not "free". Nobody minds if you charge for your work, but please be straight about it right on the cover page, i. e. the MacUpdate home page, not just in the info text.

I had tried out the previous version of this app with no adverse effects to my Mac, but when I launched this new version, my screen went black and stayed that way, could not force-quit, could not do anything but force a restart of my computer, and then it could not get past the grey Apple screen, and I waited patiently to no avail. I then forced another restart and held down the option-command-O-F key combination to boot into Open Firmware. In Open Firmware I issued the 'reset NVRAM', 'set defaults', and 'reset all' commands and then my Mac booted properly. This version is therefore no longer available for download.

Thanks for checking this out and pulling it. I would certainly have downloaded and tried this one out otherwise. You saved me from a bad experience!

You're welcome. I was well and truly angered by the experience. I've never had a similar event happen to me. I've used Apple computers since 1978, maybe I've just been lucky.

Sorry. I've uploaded a fixed version to my server. If you do a Get Info on this version, you'll see that it is version 1.0pre2.1. Nothing else has changed. I do test these things before I post them, but it worked on my computer because I had some debug files that no one else has.

Dear Admin: I read your warning about this crashing your Mac as well as the Developer's reply. Taking the chance that he fixed this, I attempted to download. As per the Editor's comment above the description, it downloaded as code (I forgot to OPT-click). However, when I did OPT-click the link, I got a .txt file which opens as a page of code. I will attempt to send this to Developer as well, but thought you needed to know this.

and whenever this sort of thing occurs, simply remove the .txt suffix from the downloaded file.

Impressive software. I was an elementary computer specialist for the past four years and I would have loved to use this with my students. Kidpix is a great tools, but kids intentionally or unintentionally got lost among the options. This has just enough options to inspire creativity. One note, I could get pictures to import into the slide show program, but I couldn't get a written page to import.

The intention was that you would use the text tool in the drawing module and the narrate function in the slide show module if you needed to present text. I will, however, look into adding the ability to import text with a future version.

The files are saved to /Users/Shared/KidOffice Documents// This was done to make the interface less confusing for kids. You can change the folder that they are saved to in the settings window. You can also use the "Save to Disk" button to save the files to any location. The background pattern is randomly chosen each time you run the program. You can change it by holding down the apple and option keys and pressing "B" a few times. I'll look into making the Writing window resizable in a future version. Thanks for your input.
