Let's draw!

Now, you might be in one of four different situations, depending on whether you've been following along or not. Choose the situation you're in and follow the directions:

  1. You just finished the paint exercise and the painting is still on your screen.

    1. Save this document: press Command S.

    2. Click in its little close box in the upper-left corner, or use the keyboard shortcut Command W (W for Window).

    3. Go to the next page in this book.

  2. You finished the paint exercise, saved and closed it, and didn't quit AppleWorks. In the far-right corner of the menu bar, you see "AppleWorks" and a tiny icon of AppleWorks ( )

    • You are exactly where you need to be! Go to the next page in this book.

  3. You finished the paint exercise, saved and closed it, and didn't quit AppleWorks. BUT in the far-right corner of the menu bar, you see a tiny icon of the Macintosh logo ().

    1. Click once on that little happy Mac icon to get the Application menu, as shown to the left.

    2. If you didn't actually quit AppleWorks, you will see it still listed in the Application menu. Select it.

    3. After you select AppleWorks, you should see the AppleWorks icon on the far right (where the happy Mac icon was a minute ago) and the toolbar across the top. Go to the next page of this book.


      This is the Application menu. The checkmark indicates what is active, or open, at the moment. Choose AppleWorks.


  4. You skipped the painting exercise (you shouldn't have!), or you turned off your computer and came back later, and AppleWorks is not open.

    1. Open AppleWorks just like you did the first time: double-click the application icon (it's inside the AppleWorks folder).

    2. AppleWorks 5: Double-click "Drawing."

      AppleWorks 6: Single-click "Drawing."

      Go to the top of the next page, but skip the first step, the one that says, "Open a draw document," because you just opened one.
