Example of converting a Claris Draw drawing to a native EazyDraw drawing.

Apple Works:

Apple has dropped support for AppleWorks, a great classic application whose time has passed. Apple's new proprietary workflow offering is iWork '08. The iWork '08 suite does not provide a drawing application. Many users migrating to iWork have found EazyDraw to be the perfect solution for their drawing needs. In response to this trend, EazyDraw now offers a full import of AppleWorks 6 drawings. Since the iWork applications and EazyDraw are founded on the Cocoa technology, EazyDraw works as a full fledged team player, finishing out the Dream Workflow of the future. More Info: AppleWorks Import .

Import the Classic Mac Drawing Files:

EazyDraw now supports full import of AppleWorks 6, Claris Draw, MacDrawII, MacDrawPro and PICT files. All vector information, patterns, colors, gradients, groups, layers and rotated object, are supported by the import.

Full support is provided for import and editing of PICT images and files. PICT content may be converted to EazyDraw vector graphics. The conversion conserves vector information, fully attributed text, as well as embedded bitmap images.

ClarisDraw Libraries:

ClarisDraw libraries are fully supported by EazyDraw. A ClarisDraw library is opened directly into EazyDraw. The Claris Library becomes an EazyDraw library with support for all the EazyDraw library modes: Name, Button, Element, with main menu access.

Screen Shot
The screen shot to the left shows a Claris Draw import result. The back window is a ClarisDraw window running in the Classic Mode on OS X. The drawing was created with Claris Draw. The forward window shows the same file imported into EazyDraw running native OS X.
Note on evaluation
We understand that our 20 graphic demo license limit may not allow proper evaluation of our ability to properly read these files. We will translate, at no charge, one or two files. You may email the MacDraw, ClarisDraw, or AppleWorks files to support@eazydraw.com and we will return the *.ezdraw converted file, which you may view in the reader mode (without purchasing a license).
Move up - Keep Working
Our full import of all the information in these classic Mac graphic files will make your migration to the newer workflows a pleasant experience. All you'll need to do is use EazyDraw to make your next revisions to your existing classic drawings.
