Mass Conversion of Appleworks Files

Post by Mario » 2008-08-26 07:46:54

I have a couple of thousand Appleworks files I want to convert to Nisus. Anyone know a way to do this where I don't have to open each file and do it manually? Is there a way to convert them all at once?

Nisus Writer doesn't open AppleWorks files. I'm not sure what kind of automation AppleWorks provides to save files in other formats like RTF. You would probably do best by asking your question on an AppleWorks forum/list. Sorry to not be of any help.

You can do so using a shareware application called MacLink Plus (link to the product page here). Note that you will need to pay for this product.

Thanks for the suggestions. I posted my question on the Appleworks forum and a couple of people put up some Appleworks scripts that did exactly what I wanted.
