I’ve been trying to figure out how to print from the IIGS Sweet16 emulator for a while now. I went through the user guide and finally figured out all the little pieces I need to have in place. The following are a few graphics of the pieces. Many of the snapshots are taken directly from the user guide. I have included the link to the user guide for your reference.
—– In short when you print from the IIGS Sweet16 emulator it actually creates a PDF file and calls the macOS Preview app on your main macOS computer and creates a PDF. You’ll see it run as it’s converting a postscript. http://www.sheppyware.net/downloads/downloads-mac/files/Sweet16%20User%20Guide.pdf
The first snapshot is all things in place as finished product: 1) IIGS Emulator ruining AppleWorksGS 2) the same document in PDF format in The macOS Preview App 3) the Sweet16 Disks box which tells you what disks are loaded in the IIGS.
The example below is an AppleWorks 5.1 file imported into AppleWorksGS. My MacBook Pro is running macOS Sierra.
Getting there: here are some extracts from the manual. The Sweet16Tools is a Dropdown from Setup on the Sweet16 Menu Bar. Now, open the ReadMeFirst, as I believe it has the most succinct set of instructions on how to get things correctly installed.
Sweet16 Tools Version 3.0.1 Copyright 2006-2013 Eric Shepherd & F.E. Systems
The files on this disk image, once used properly, enable special features inside Sweet16.
By the way, after completing the install and reboot I opened the ReadMeFirst file in Teach and was able to print it to a PDF in Preview.

I’ve managed to install four versions of AppleWorks on my OmniDisk in Virtual II Emulator. I’ve also been testing various TimeOut Applications. AppleWorks 5.1 and 4.3 come with many of the TimeOut functions built in. So I’ve been trying lots of the other add-ons published separately to see what is out there. Here is a link to lots of the stuff:
Here is my OmniDisk 32 MB HardDrive in Virtual II. This Super Selector is a pretty nice text based Launcher. It has Quick-Keys you can set up. You can see Closed-Apple-F is for AppleWorks 5.1. There’s an extra step to setting up the Quick-Keys which isn’t noted in the process. Easy, once you know. I’ll post the Steps at the End.
In Virtual II Emulator I always had the No-Slot Clock selected but I wasn’t seeing the time-stamps showing up on files. Then a light bulb finally went on. I had to Install it on the Boot Disk and run the Setup. So I downloaded the ProDOS version:
I’ve been working with the Super Selector v3.2.2 on the Hard Drive (Virtual and Real) on the Apple IIe. I wanted to change some of the “Quick-Keys” which startup programs you assign to them. It turns out the entry of the information is easy. However, the saving your entry process is has an extra step not noted in the screens process. Quick-Key Setup.
1) You use the Open-Apple-Q to bring up the Menu of Quick-Keys.
2) From there you select the Quick-Key you’d like to change by scrolling to it
and hitting the Return Key. This brings up the edit menu for that item.
3) You change the Title of the Quick-Key on the top line and the path on the
4) Then you select Open-Apple-A to Accept.
[ the Accept box disappears ]
5) Lastly, you a) hit esc to go back to the Main Menu b) Then type Open-
Apple-O to go to the Options Screen and then c) you save permanently with Open-Apple-S. You’ll see the box blink a little.
On the Save screen there are other configuration options. See below:
Not only are you saving the Quick-Key you just Setup, but also the location. In my case I run from a Hard Drive (OmniDisk in the Emulator as well as SCSI Drive in real lle) so Slot 7 Drive 1 is the selection. When you use Open-Apple-S to Save the Config you’ll see the Box with “Save Copy” change to semi-solid background until save is completed.
Thought I’d try it out. Downloaded AW5 from Apple2Online.com and unzip to Install and Program 2mg images. I ran the install to put it on my 32MB ProDOS drive where AW2 and AW3 also reside. Install front-end program is very different. See the 3 screen shots at the end.
This is a snapshot of the PDF created in the Virtual II Emulator. These are raw notes I made as I went along. There are typos below since I hadn’t run Spell Check yet.
I’m still intrigued by WordStar and SpellStar. So, I installed my MicroSoft SoftCard CP/M card. (March 28, 2017 post) Here I’m running it on my Apple //e using both drives of my DuoDisk. I did a short post last August when running on my Virtual ][ Emulator. So, I created so floppies from downloaded images and used ADTPro from my MacBook Pro to my IIGS. The display is on the NightOwl. Also, some of my comments in the text are before I read a WordStar manual. Sometimes you just need to RTFM.
I acquired some thirty plus original SoftDiskGS 3.5″ disks. On Disk 64 was this calendar template for AppleWorksGS. It worked nicely but took forever to load, even on my TransWarpGS. However, once loaded it would recalculate quickly for the month and year you enter. These are the two variable entries at the top of the page. Here are some pictures and printout from my LaserWriter II. It took 10-15 minutes to print one month.
I use the manilaGear.com IIGS VGA adapter on my Rom01 IIGS.
