    Modern TIFF/EPS/image formats for use in System 6/7?

    @Garrett Did you try GraphicConverter? I've tried "Save As" in GraphicConverter 11, but didn't have any luck. Maybe I should try going from JPG to TIFF (as I think I was going from a TIFF to TIFF) or maybe SVG to EPS?

    Modern TIFF/EPS/image formats for use in System 6/7?

    As a follow up to my last thread about modern TrueType fonts in System 7 (which I actually wrote a blog post about), I have another related issue: How can I get modern TIFF, EPS, or other image formats (PICT?) into a format that most software can recognize in System 6 and System 7. When I had...

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    I not only got it working in Mini vMac, but on my Classic as well. In fact, the Classic did a bulk of the work on converting the TTF files. Doing it on the Classic probably didn't take considerably longer than converting everything in Mini vMac, all things considered. I've noticed some TrueType...

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    Finally! Got the converter up and running, and after that it was smooth sailing (finally.) Now I got to try it out on actual hardware, but it's cool seeing my favorite modern/unusual fonts (outside of the standard system fonts) in System 7.

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    Much farther, but still not perfect. Did you open the archive with BinHex or some other way? When I try to load your disk image (from the regular ZIP archive) it says the disk is unrecognizable and asks me if I want to initialize it?

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    Since the original installer came in a .hqx file, should I import that and expand using BinHex? I tried to expand the .cpt file I expanded out of the .hqx file, but StuffIt Lite 3.5 wasn't doing the job. (StuffIt Expander 5.5 might, but I'd need to upgrade to System 7.1.1.)

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    That worked! I've never heard of it before, but I'm happy to find something that works like a charm expanding the .sit and .hqx/hex archives. Now that I've expanded the archive, another problem. I see the image I need to load into Mini vMac, but Mini vMac will not open it? (I drag it onto the...

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    I've been OK, just got into another hobby and with work haven't had much time to tinker around with the old Macs except turn them on and use them for writing. I was thinking it probably had something to do "deeper down" than the file info, and I know the resource forks can cause headaches...

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    That got me a little bit closer to what I want to do. It changed the thumbnail in the Finder to the font logo, but I wasn't able to use it, even after placing in the Fonts folder. It wouldn't show up in any of the programs I tried (Word 4.0 and MacWrite.)

    TrueType Fonts under System 7

    Lately I've been wanting to install newer custom TrueType fonts on my Macintosh Classic under System 7.1. However, I'm not sure how to get the font files onto the computer or into a format the computer can install. I thought it was as simple as dragging the TTF files into the Fonts folder in...

    Kendall's Collection and Finds!

    In my case, there were extra control panels installed for the accelerator card. Another dead giveaway might be more than 4 MB of memory, which was how I first found out about the 030 accelerator in my SuperSE. (Besides all of the 50+ extensions and the strange "custom" boot screen.) With that...

    Kendall's Collection and Finds!

    That's what I was thinking but wasn't sure. Is there also a memory or processor expansion in there, or is it strictly external display? I know many of the early cards were hacked into the processor slot and some other things. Kinda incredible when you think about it. Either way, congrats! I...

    Kendall's Collection and Finds!

    The Mobius 030 accelerator in my SuperSE (along with many other accelerators and other upgrade cards for the SE) have display outputs, but I never knew that was a thing with the Plus. Is it an internal card (if so, I wonder how it "interfaces" since there's no expansion port in the Plus) or...

    someone's conquest on reddit..

    I'd take it, if I had the room. If nothing else, it could be a backup or spare. My ImageWriter II gets a lot of use, especially lately. It's the only functional printer I have right now... my modern Canon Pixma inkjet printer needs ink and the Apple Color StyleWriter 2500 I picked up back in...

    ImageWriter II alignment issues

    I'll have a look tomorrow and will try to post a video, but most times after powering on the printer the carriage moves to the left and then back to center. I'm not sure if it does that when it acts up.

    ImageWriter II alignment issues

    Lately I've been having an issue with my ImageWriter II printer. After loading paper between the red guides, the printer will start printing as if the center of the paper is the left edge of the paper. Centered text is on the right half of the page while the left half is blank. Some text is...

    PowerBook Stuck Batteries

    The battery door removes from the battery itself. I guess I could rebuild the pack with some new cells, but I'm not sure if I'd do that as I'm not very good at soldering. It would be nice, though.

    PowerBook Stuck Batteries

    Tonight I got the battery pulled out. Separating the case wasn't as bad as I thought, though the cheap precision bit toolkit I bought ($10) was the main problem as the bits kept falling out. Ugh! Thankfully, the inside of this machine is clean and there's no corrosion anywhere. There's no...

    PowerBook Stuck Batteries

    Last night I purchased a tool kit that has the bits I'd need to work with the PowerBook 165. I'm hoping this isn't a really dumb question, but how can you remove the case (without damaging it) with the battery still installed? Every guide and disassembly video shows the battery being removed...
