How do I read a document in icWord®?
Simply drag the MS Word or AppleWorks file onto the icWord® icon, or, if icWord® is already open, you can use the 'open' command in the file menu.
What's new in Version 4.1?
Can I use icWord to do a batch conversion of AppleWorks files in Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)?
icWord 4.1 is better used as a viewer to see AppleWorks 5/6 or ClarisWorks 5 files on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). icWord 4.1 will convert one file at a time by doing a Save As... command for each file that you view. If you are moving from an older system to Mac OS X 10.5 and you need to do a batch conversion of AppleWorks word processing files (cwk) then use docXConverter 3.0 that allows you to do batch conversion.
What's new in Version 4.0?
Is version 4 a free upgrade to owners of previous versions (1 , 2 or 3)?
The upgrade to version 4 is a paying upgrade for users who have purchased icWord 3 or any previous version. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get the details of the upgrade procedure.
Can icWord 4 show Word 2007 docx files?
icWord 4.x cannot open Word 2007 docx files by itself. However, it works together with docXConverter to show the docx files. docXConverter is converting the docx files to the RTF format and icWord 4.x shows the resulting RTF files.
My Mac can't open the icWord® application that I downloaded from this site (installation problems).
For OS X:
After downloading the program you should get a single file called "icWord_4.1.dmg".
For OS 9:
After downloading the program you should get a single file called "icWord4.0.sit" which has been compressed by a program called Stuffit which is very common in the Mac world.
If your .sit file was not decompressed automatically, drag it on the Stuffit Expander application and it will start to decompress. If you do not find the freeware application "Stuffit Expander", it is available for download at Allume Systems web site.
Is icWord® 100% WYSIWYG?
Almost. Columns are displayed one after the other. WordArt text is presented, but the art form isn't retained. Most drawings are presented; some freeform drawings are not.
Where are my footnotes?
You can see the text of a footnote by pointing at it. The text will appear in a bubble and will also appear, numbered, at the end of the document.
Does icWord® support other languages?
icWord® works in English, all Western European languages and all double-byte languages (Far East) such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. icWord® 4.0 has also a Japanese version .
icWord® doesn't open my MS Word file. What should I do?
On OS 9 it is possible that icWord® needs more memory, so try allocating more memory to the program. To do so see Mac OS: Assigning more memory to an application program.
If this doesn't work or if you are working on Mac OS X, send the original Word file to email@example.com. We will try to get that file opened for you!
What is the difference between the different file formats icWord® supports in 'save as' feature?
RTF (Rich Text Format):
Unicode text document:
What is CarbonLib and where do I download it?
In order to run, icWord® 4.x requires the presence of CarbonLib 1.6 or better in your system. CarbonLib is an Apple library used to provide Mac OS X Compatability. If CarbonLib 1.6 is not present in your system, icWord® 4.x will give an alert requesting it. You may download the latest version of CarbonLib from the Apple web site.
