Re: [wpmac] Does WPMac benefit from QuickDraw GX?
- Further to this; QuickDraw GX seems to be enabled in OS 9 - but it's not clear whether it's enabled ONLY when you install a foreign language kit that includes ligature substitution (e.g. Arabic), or whether it's enabled by default. When you install Arabic in OS 9, you get a control panel which lets you enable or disable the QuickDraw GX feature that combines characters. It's not clear whether GX is installed until you install WorldScript (which gets installed with Arabic and other alphabets).

> Thanks for this. QuickDraw GX is a different thing from QuickDraw. QuickDraw is an integral part of the OS, but QuickDraw GX is a separate technology that can be installed or omitted. Under OS 7/8, QuickDraw GX needs to be installed separately as an option. I don't see that option under OS 9, and I think - but am not certain - that QuickDraw GX got dropped by the time OS 9 was released.
