Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Our Review
There's an awful lot of power built into the AppleWorks 6 software that came with your iMac -- and AppleWorks 6 Bible gives you fast, easy access to all of it.

You'll find detailed coverage of every "environment" built into AppleWorks 6: word processing, spreadsheet, database, drawing, painting, and the new Presentation module, which supersedes the simple "slide show" capabilities offered in previous versions of AppleWorks. You'll find equally detailed coverage of AppleWorks' extensive new Internet integration, including the use of hyperlinks and bookmarks in your documents, and a full chapter on creating HTML documents with AppleWorks.

There's a full chapter on AppleWorks mail merge, another on incorporating spreadsheet tables and charts, and yet another on importing QuickTime movies (such as your nifty new iMovies) into your documents. You'll also find solid coverage of many AppleWorks productivity shortcuts that many beginners don't realize exist, such as Clippings for inserting boilerplate text and graphics, Templates for creating new documents based on existing ones, and Macros for automating tasks you perform repeatedly.

If you want to make the most of what Apple's given you, AppleWorks 6 Bible is the book you're looking for.
