Summary: How to transfer MacWrite files between Macintosh and PC.
It may nevertheless be astonishing to know that no text processing program on the PC can open MacWrite files. Users have to export files in plain Ascii from the original program or use special text conversion utilities. This latter solution is the only way to go if you work on the PC or if there are too many files.
A demonstration version of our MacText utility is available on this site.
When the software division of Apple was token over by Claris, a new (commercial) version of MacWrite was launched. As it was not free any more, competitors appeared (WriteNow, Nisus, even Word). As a matter of consequence, MacWrite II could not register the same success.
MacWrite II (and the next version, MacWrite II Pro) are still plagued with the same problem: these formats are still ignored on the PC side of the fence. Our MacTexte utility handles MacWrite II files, but not yet MacWrite II Pro.
