Routine OS X Maintenance and Generic Troubleshooting
- You're welcome, Tom. Glad to see you here.
WP 3.5e with the OS 8/9 updater runs without problems in Classic. If
you set System Prefs
to have Classic load at startup, WP will load as fast as ever when
It's normally the only program I run in Classic, so it enjoys as
much protected memory as
any OS X native program. If any program crashes, it crashes but the
rest of the computer is
unaffected. WP's timed backup further extends safety of data.
I was glad to see that the few extensions and control panels that
made my writing
environment even better also run fine in Classic. These include
"Keys!", which lets you type
just the first letter of any button in almost any dialog to click
that button, and SmartKeys,
which changes two hyphens to a dash, prevents typing more than one
space at a time and
such. Let me know if you'd like me to post these oldies but
goodies for download.
Rendering of some fonts is not as good for WP in Classic as it was in
OS 9. This is easily
fixed with the SmoothType extension, as described at Ed
Mendelson's site (search for "WP
and OS X" in the Links section here). At the site, go to the
"How to Make Classic Look Like
OS X" part.
While you're there, get the free Print to PDF components. This
feature is for my uses a
major advantage of OS X, and you can now do it just as well with WP,
anything from Adobe.

spoke well of WP and its exceptional support for serious writing.
- I know this is not a Word Listserv, but to be fair to that program,
how do you convince Word that you mean it when you make a change to
its settings using the customize feature. Don't know what I'm doing
wrong, but customizing my settings doesn't always seem to last beyond
the current session in many cases. Is there a common mistake users
make when trying to reconfigure key board shortcuts and other custom
settings that causes Word to revert to its defaults?
