Writer/Artist: How to Transfer Documents b/t Mac and Windows

SUMMARY

If you create a document in Creative Writer for the Macintosh, you
can easily open it in Creative Writer for Windows, and vice versa.
Similarly, you can open Fine Artist documents in either Fine Artist for
Windows or Fine Artist for the Macintosh.


Note, however, that you cannot open Fine Artist files in Creative Writer,
or Creative Writer documents in Fine Artist, regardless of the platform
they are created on.

Steps for Converting Files from the Macintosh for Use in Windows

Creative Writer and Fine Artist for Windows can open files from Macintosh
Creative Writer and Fine Artist as long as they have valid MS-DOS file
names (that is, they must have the .MAX filename extension for Creative
Writer and the .MAG filename extension for Fine Artist).


To transfer a document from Creative Writer for the Macintosh to Creative
Writer for Windows, use the following steps:

  1. Save the file with a valid MS-DOS filename. The name can be eight
    characters or fewer, followed by the appropriate three-character
    extension (the .MAX filename extension for Creative Writer and the .MAG
    filename extension for Fine Artist).
  2. Place this file on an MS-DOS formatted disk. This can be done using a
    translation utility, such as Apple File Exchange, that allows your
    Macintosh to recognize an MS-DOS-formatted disk. The methods for
    transferring the file to the MS-DOS disk vary, depending on which
    utility you use.
  3. Insert this disk into the computer running Windows, and start Creative
    Writer (or Fine Artist).
  4. In the Writing Studio, start the Portfolio, select the floppy disk
    drive (usually A), click Ratdog, and type the name of the file. Open
    the file.

Steps for Converting Files from Windows for Use on the Macintosh

Creative Writer and Fine Artist for the Macintosh recognize files from
Creative Writer and Fine Artist for Windows, respectively. You do not need
to use special file naming conventions to ensure that these files are
recognized.


To open a Windows document on the Macintosh, use steps similar to those
outlined above: that is, place the file on an MS-DOS disk, use a file
conversion utility, insert the disk in the Macintosh, run the program, and
select the file in the Portfolio.
