'The Print Shop' Emulator

For those who were fans of the old Apple II program, this is pretty damn cool. You can even "print" to PDF.

Interesting, I really enjoyed The Print Shop when it first came out. This emulation has some quirks: my keyboard has a numeric keypad, and the enter key on the numeric keypad won't work, but the main enter key does. Also, when I tried to enlarge the screen (trying to clear up some of the screen fonts) it crashed the emulation. Overall, a pretty nice setup, though.

You can download images of the older The Print Shop from here:

Later on, the authors of The Print Shop created Print Artist (which I liked more.) It was actually published by Autodesk, the AutoCAD people. You can get that here:

Thanks Halcyon.

Pretty cool site; although an occasional user of Apple ][ systems (only when visiting friends and family that owned one), I used Print Shop extensively on the PC.

I love how they mimic the crappy color seeping through the pixels. It reminded me of a screensaver for *nix that emulated an Apple ][ screen. Unfortunately the link to download it is dead.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...
