//Write v1.01 Graphical Word Processor for Apple IIe

July 30, 2017

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..

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.

Sensible Speller for Apple IIe (ProDOS version)

July 2, 2017

I became curious about Sensible Speller and how it would operate as a non integrated program.  Here are some screen captures of the Bootup, Spell Check, Dictionary selection and creation, and handling of the “suspect” words as they call them. I performed the initial run on a pfs:Write file and then an AppleWorks file. When the screen pics below go amber color that’s the part on collecting the suspect words, putting them in a custom dictionary, and then verifying the custom dictionary works. 

Boot Screen

Main Menu

Select Dictionary: Only one dictionary can be used at a time. But it asks after each run if you want to try another dictionary. Here, dictionary 1 and 2.

Loading the pfs:Write file. You need to type complete path name.

If provides you the option to print the lists. You can see the words below have mostly ordinated since the 1990s.

Listing the “suspect” words.

Working the suspect words. I am still trying to figure out which word it’s referencing as many are highlighted.

AppleWorks:  Switching to Check another word processor type requires running a Speller setup program. It is no available from the boot menu. You must run it by some other means.   I used Super Selector as seen below.

Running the Setup.Speller.

Customize Spell and Quick Setups

Selected AppleWorks.

Type full path name.


Creating a new dictionary to house the words you want to save.

First you need to go back to the Setup Menu to Create a Dictionary disk. Here I call it NewDict.
Then you have to actually Create a blank or empty Dictionary on the Dictionary Disk. Again type the full path name.

I need to pull a screen capture of Adding Words to Old Dictionary. Based on the following it was confusing how to pull the “Old” custom dictionary. However, it let’s you create the dictionary file on the fly. Here I called it “Old2” and below is example of process, including saving the new words to “Old2” and using it.


MouseWrite v2.6.8 on Apple IIGSĀ 

April 30, 2016


This version. 2.6.8, has Spell Checker disk, and Accessories disk. You can copy everything to hard drive. Nice.

The old spell checkers are fun since they don’t contain any of the tech words from the last 30 years. Example here is geek.
