Claris bugged by Internet?

Send Article to a Friend

Claris bugged by Internet? -- Ever-vigilant Craig O'Donnell uncovered an obscure bug in several Claris applications that will most likely only bite users of the nets. It seems that ClarisWorks 1.0 and 2.0 and MacWrite Pro 1.0 both fail to correctly print space-delimited tables (like all the ones we put in TidBITS) in monospaced fonts (like Courier and Monaco, which should print aligned) to (at least) the StyleWriter II and to the LaserWriter Select 300. Claris confirmed the problem with the unaligned tables and recommended printing to a LaserWriter, presumably one with PostScript. What a helpful suggestion! (We heard later the unfortunate tech support therapist who made that suggestion was put on a bread and water diet and forced to answer calls about MacPaint 1.0 from users with 128K Macs.)
