Your shiny new iMac (or iBook) comes with everything you need for word processing, spreadsheeting, charting, drawing, painting, presenting, even "database-ing." It's AppleWorks 6. If you'd like a human-scale guide to Apple's human-scale productivity suite, here it is.
AppleWorks 6 will handle a surprisingly wide range of tasks, and AppleWorks for Macintosh Visual Quickstart Guide is organized around roughly 200 of those tasks: the ones that most people are most likely to need. For each task, there's a high-level, to-the-point overview, detailed step-by-step instructions, and lots of screen shots -- all delivered in the open, friendly Visual QuickStart style.
You'll find lots of handy productivity shortcuts. For example, there's a full chapter on AppleWorks' handy Clippings feature, which allows you to quickly add your most-used items to any documents: images, blocks of text, frames, aliases, even web addresses. From mail merge to creating effective database layouts, importing Microsoft Word documents (make sure you're running AppleWorks 6.04!) to working with AppleWorks 6's simplified table creation feature, it's covered.
Clean, simple, elegant software deserves a clean, simple, elegant explanation. That's what AppleWorks for Macintosh Visual Quickstart Guide</> delivers. (Bill Camarda)
