Here is the link (2 dsk images) and a bunch of pictures. Pretty straight forward.
Correction to the “Import File” note in the examples below. I was able to import AppleWorks files. It gives you an error message but you ignore it and everything seems to import fine with the exception of style/format features. Examples added at the bottom of this article..
Here’s the screen appearance using the Script font.
Open file screen on Drive 1.
Open file on Drive 2 after I created the file.
Screen appearance in regular type font.
Saving file a separate ProDOS formatted disk.
Selecting printer configuration. Mine is actually ImageWriter II and Apple Serial Card.
The printouts to PDF in Emulator.
Importing AppleWorks files.
Importing some of the standard AppleWorks data disk files.
Saving the imported file to my //Write DATA disk in Drive 2.
In the Drop down menu below you see //Spell but I don’t know if they ever created the Spell Checker. I’m searching but I haven’t found it yet.

A SCSI Hard Drive in Virtual ][.
This is a 2mg image I created in Virtual ][. It boots to Super Selector v3.22 which is a text based Program Selector. It works with a mouse or keyboard. I’ve also installed System Utilities v3.1, MouseWrite v2.6.8 and MouseCalc. I’ve already set the default startup subdirectories for MouseWrite, including Accessory and Speller (which you get to via Accessory). I have some Christmas greetings docs you can open for starters.
I have Super Selector on an actual scsi drive connected to my real lle.
The original 32 MB image supplied by the group.
Per Facebook Apple ll Enthusiasts forum. I have a question. Virtual II on my Macbook Pro has trouble with a 32Mb .po disk image (unrecognized format, it says). I imagine I will be able to use it with the Apple II emulator on Win, but I wanted to ask if anyone knows how to make Virtual II open such files. After all, I bought this software… Thanks!!!
Courtesy of Mark Pilgrim who illustrated how to do this. You need to convert it to a .2mg image with CiderPress, then go to Virtual II configuration and set up a SCSI II Card with an OmniDisk. Then you can “Insert OmniDisk Image…” (under Media menu) to mount the .2mg image.
