interference
The equipment described in this manual generates and uses radio-frequency energy.
If it is not installed and used properly—that is, in strict accordance with Apple’s
instructions—it may cause interference with radio and television reception.
This equipment has been tested and complies with the limits for a Class B digital device
in accordance with the specifications in Part 15 of FCC rules. These specifications are
designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential
installation. However, there is no guarantee that the interference will not occur in a
particular installation.
You can determine whether your computer is causing interference by turning it off.
If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the computer or one of the
peripheral devices.
If your computer system does cause interference to radio or television reception,
try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
■
Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
■
Move the computer to one side or the other of the television or radio.
■
Move the computer farther away from the television or radio.
■
Plug the computer into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or
radio. (That is, make certain the computer and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
If necessary, consult your authorized Apple dealer or an experienced radio/television
technician for additional suggestions. You may find helpful the following booklet,
prepared by the Federal Communications Commission: Interference Handbook (stock
number 004-000-00345-4). This booklet is available from the U.S. Government Printing
Office, Washington, DC 20402.

About the
Apple IIe Card
The Apple IIe Card is an accessory card that lets you run Apple IIe
programs on a Macintosh LC computer. Once you’ve set a few options
in the card’s Option Panel, turning the Macintosh into an Apple IIe is
as simple as double-clicking an icon on the Macintosh desktop.
While your Macintosh LC is in the Apple IIe environment, it performs
just like an Apple IIe computer. You start up Apple IIe programs, work
with Apple IIe files, use Apple II system utilities—just as you do on an
Apple IIe. And what you see on the Macintosh monitor is exactly what
you’d see on an Apple IIe monitor.

Chapter 1
Preparing the Equipment
T
he Apple IIe Card should already be installed in your Macintosh LC
computer. You don’t need to assemble or connect anything else to run
Apple IIe programs on your Macintosh LC.
However, if you want to use a hard disk to store Apple IIe information or
if you want to connect any Apple IIe disk drives or other devices, you’ll
need to follow the instructions in this chapter.
Otherwise, you can skip now to Chapter 2, “Preparing the Software.”
▲ Warning: Before connecting anything to your computer, make sure the
power cord is plugged in and the power is turned off. The power cord
acts as a ground for your computer, protecting you from electrical shock,
even when the computer is turned off. ▲

Protecting the disks
Before you do anything else, you should lock the two disks that came
with the Apple IIe Card: the IIe Installer Disk and the IIe Startup Disk.
Locking disks prevents you from accidentally changing or erasing
the files.
To lock a disk, slide the plastic tab on the back of the disk. When you
can see through the hole, the disk is locked.
Locked
Using a hard disk to
store Apple IIe files
Unlocked
This section helps you decide whether you should store your Apple IIe
files on a hard disk or keep them on 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch floppy disks.
If you decide to store Apple IIe files on your hard disk, this section also
tells you how to prepare the hard disk so it can store both Macintosh
and Apple IIe files.
If you don’t have a hard disk, you can go immediately to the next main
section, “Connecting Apple IIe Disk Drives.”

Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment
Deciding where to store
your Apple IIe files
If you have a hard disk, you need to decide whether you want to reserve
part of it for Apple IIe files. The sooner you decide, the easier it will be to
prepare the hard disk.
Why you might want to use the hard disk
The greatest advantage of storing Apple IIe information on a hard disk is
ease of use: you can store all your ProDOS files in one place, so you don’t
have to remember where a particular file is. Also, using a hard disk allows
you to store and retrieve information more quickly.
Why you might not want to use the hard disk
The greatest disadvantage of using your hard disk to store Apple IIe
information is that it reduces the amount of hard disk storage available
for Macintosh files. Also, the process of creating space for your
Apple IIe files is time-consuming, and requires you to erase your hard
disk. Only hard disks manufactured by Apple can store Apple IIe files.
If your Macintosh is connected to a file server, you can store your
Apple IIe files on the file server instead of on your hard disk, if you like.
Some suggestions
If you’ll be using your Apple IIe files a lot, or if your Apple IIe files are too
big to fit on floppy disks, set aside a portion of your hard disk for them. If
a number of people are sharing the computer (in a school for example),
you can store Apple IIe programs on the hard disk while people store
their personal files on their own floppy disks.
If you plan to use your Apple IIe files only occasionally, keep them on
floppy disks and save your hard disk exclusively for Macintosh files.
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment
3
The advantage of making your decision right away
You can’t store both Apple IIe files and Macintosh files on the same
hard disk unless you reserve part of the hard disk for Apple IIe files.
Unfortunately, the procedure that reserves the space requires you
to erase all information stored on the hard disk.
If you decide to reserve space for Apple IIe files when you’ve just gotten
your computer, you won’t yet have any personal information on the hard
disk, so erasing the hard disk won’t be too disruptive. Later, if you have a
lot of information stored, you’ll have to take extra steps to copy your data
before you erase the hard disk and then put the data back afterward.
What to do next
If you’ve decided to store Apple IIe files on your hard disk, continue with
this section. Otherwise, skip ahead to the next main section, “Connecting
Apple IIe Disk Drives.”
Reserving hard disk space
for Apple IIe files
This section is for people who have an Apple hard disk connected to
their Macintosh LC and want to use a portion of it to store Apple IIe files.
(The hard disk can be built into the Macintosh or connected by a cable.)
The process of reserving part of the hard disk for Apple IIe files is called
partitioning the hard disk.
Partitioning your hard disk erases everything already stored on it, so
before partitioning you must make backup copies of any files on your
hard disk. This section explains how to
4
■
back up the contents of your hard disk
■
create an Apple IIe partition on your hard disk
■
restore the original contents of your hard disk
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment
Backing up your hard disk
To back up your hard disk, follow the steps in this section. (If you
normally use another method of backing up your files, such as copying
them to another hard disk or to a tape cartridge, you can use that
method instead.)
1. Turn on your Macintosh LC computer.
If your computer is already on, quit any programs you might be
running.
2. Insert a blank 3.5-inch floppy disk into the built-in disk drive.
If you see a message asking if you want to initialize the disk, click
Initialize. (If you’re using an 800K disk, click Double-Sided.)
3. Copy your files and folders to the floppy disk.
Drag each icon from your hard disk to the floppy disk’s icon until you
get a message that the floppy disk is full. Then eject the floppy disk
and repeat the procedure until you’ve backed up all the files you want
to save.
Some folders may be too big to fit on floppy disks. If so, you can
open the folder and drag its contents one icon at a time to the floppy
disk icon.
For more information about copying files and folders, see the books
that came with your Macintosh.
4. Label the disks so you can remember what’s on them.
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment

Partitioning your hard disk
This section explains how to partition your hard disk using a program
called Apple HD SC Setup.
❖
How much space do you need? The procedure described in this
section sets aside 10 MB of space for Apple IIe files. If you need
a different amount, turn now to Appendix C, “Creating Custom
Partitions,” and read the section called “The Custom Partition.”
When you finish, skip to the next section in this chapter, “Restoring
the Contents of the Hard Disk.” ❖
Follow these steps to partition the hard disk:
s
▲ Important: Apple HD SC Setup works only with hard disks
manufactured by Apple. If you have a hard disk manufactured by
another company, contact that company to ask if they have
s
software to partition the hard disk for Apple II files. ▲
Before you begin: This procedure requires 10 MB of hard disk space.
Be sure you can afford to give up that much space.
▲ Warning: Partitioning erases all information stored on your hard disk.
To preserve your information, see the previous section, “Backing Up
Your Hard Disk.” ▲
1. Shut down your Macintosh.
Choose the Shut Down command from the Special menu. You do not
have to turn off the power.
2. Insert the IIe Installer Disk into the built-in disk drive.
6
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment
3. Start up the Macintosh.
Click the Restart button if your Macintosh is already on; otherwise,
turn on the power.
If you see a message telling you that the version of system software
isn’t compatible with your computer, start this procedure again with
step 1, but use the Disk Tools disk that came with your computer
instead of the IIe Installer Disk.
4. If necessary, open the disk icon by double-clicking it.
The disk’s window appears.
5. Double-click the Apple HD SC Setup icon.
Double-click here.
The Setup program opens, as shown in the next step.
6. If you have more than one hard disk, click the Drive button
to select the one that you want to partition.
Click the Drive
button . . .
. . . until the name
of the hard disk
you want appears
here.

First, use the
scroll bar to
scroll to the
bottom of
the list.
Second, click this
option once to
select it.
Finally,
click OK.
A dialog box appears to confirm that you want to erase your hard disk.
9. Click OK in the dialog box.
The program takes a few moments to partition the disk drive and then
asks you to name the new Apple IIe partition.
8
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment
10. Type a name and then click OK.
The dialog box appears with a suggested name in it. As soon as you
start typing, the suggested name is replaced by what you type.
You can give the new partition any legal ProDOS name, and you can
use lowercase letters and spaces. ProDOS names may have any
combination of 15 numbers and letters. (The program will tell you
if you type an illegal name.)
Type a name here . . .
. . . then click OK.
11. Finally, click Quit.
You return to the regular desktop, and your new partition appears:
Your new partition
appears here.
You now have two icons representing the same hard disk. The new
icon, with the symbol for the Apple IIe on it, represents the space
reserved for your Apple IIe files. The original icon represents the rest
of the hard disk, which is reserved for Macintosh files.
continues >
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment

12. Drag the BASIC.SYSTEM icon from the IIe Installer Disk
to the new Apple IIe partition.
If you started up from the Disk Tools disk, you must eject the
Disk Tools disk and insert the IIe Installer Disk.
13. Drag the PRODOS icon to the new Apple IIe partition.
The file is copied to the new partition.
Restoring the contents of your hard disk
If you backed up the contents of your hard disk, you should now copy
the files back to the Macintosh portion of your hard disk. Follow these
steps to restore your hard disk:
1. Eject the IIe Installer Disk by dragging its icon to the Trash.
Its icon becomes dimmed.
2. Insert one of your backup disks into the disk drive.
The disk’s icon appears on the desktop.
3. Copy all the files and folders back to your hard disk.
Drag each icon from your floppy disk back to the hard disk’s icon.
If you broke up the contents of a folder across more than one disk
when you backed up, don’t forget to put all that folder’s files back in
the folder again.
4. Eject the first disk and repeat steps 2 and 3 for each
backup disk.
10
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment
5. Choose Restart from the Special menu.
The Macintosh automatically ejects any disk in its disk drive and
restarts.
❖
Why did the new Apple IIe ProDOS partition disappear? Your
Macintosh can’t display ProDOS files until you’ve installed the
Apple IIe Card software. In the next chapter, you will install the
software for the Apple IIe Card. Meanwhile, even though you
can’t see it, the ProDOS partition is still there. ❖
You can now use your Apple IIe partition to store any Apple IIe files
and programs. For details, see Appendix B, “Using a Hard Disk.”
Rebuilding your system
Sometimes copying a System Folder onto floppy disks and then back to
your hard disk, as you did in the previous sections, can cause problems
such as system crashes. If so, or if you want to prevent such problems,
you may want to rebuild your system.
To rebuild your system, use the Installer program that came with your
Macintosh (or with your most recent version of system software) to
reinstall system software. See the manuals that came with your Macintosh
(or with your most recent version of system software) for instructions.
Check the index and table of contents for entries like “installing system
software” or “reinstalling system software.”
What to do next
If you have any Apple IIe devices to connect to your Macintosh LC, such
as disk drives or joysticks, continue with this chapter. Otherwise, you can
go to Chapter 2, “Preparing the Software.”
Chapter 1: Preparing the Equipment
11
Connecting
Apple IIe disk drives
You need to read this section only if you have an Apple IIe floppy disk
drive to connect to your Macintosh LC. If you have nothing else to
connect to the Macintosh, you can go immediately to Chapter 2,
“Preparing the Software.” If you have devices other than floppy disk
drives to connect, you can skip ahead to the appropriate section in
this chapter.
You can use two types of Apple IIe floppy disk drives with the
Macintosh LC—the gray Apple 5.25 Drive and the white UniDisk
3.5 Drive. Earlier Apple II disk drives—the Disk II, UniDisk 5.25, and
DuoDisk drives, for instance—cannot be used with the Macintosh LC.
▲ Warning: Only two types of Apple II disk drives—the gray Apple
5.25 Drive and the white UniDisk 3.5 Drive—are compatible with the
Macintosh LC. Do not try to use any other type of Apple II disk drive with
the Macintosh LC. Doing so may damage the disk drive or the computer,
and may destroy the contents of your Apple II disks. ▲
Connecting the
Apple 5.25 Drive
Follow these steps to connect an Apple 5.25 Drive to the Macintosh LC:
▲ Warning: Before connecting anything to your computer, make sure the
power cord is plugged in and the power is turned off. The power cord
acts as a ground for your computer, protecting you from electrical shock,
even when the computer is turned off. ▲

Preparing the
startup disk for
your Apple IIe Card
If you have a hard disk
To use your Apple IIe Card, you must have certain files on your Macintosh
startup disk. (A startup disk is any disk—either a hard disk or a 3.5-inch
floppy disk—that contains a System Folder.)
This section explains how to install the new Apple IIe Card software on
your startup disk and how to create a new startup disk, if necessary.
If you have a hard disk, use it as your Apple IIe Card startup disk. This
section explains how.
Once you finish this section, it’s important to remember that you
installed the software on your hard disk. Many tasks in this book will have
special notes for hard disk startup people. When you see one of these
notes, remember that it applies to you.

If you’re a floppy disk startup person, you need to know a crucial
technique—starting up from the IIe Startup Disk—because it’s the only
way to run Apple IIe programs and manipulate Apple IIe files. The
technique is described in the next section, “Starting Up From the
IIe Startup Disk.”
Starting up from the

▲ Important: If you are a hard disk startup person, stop reading this
section now and skip to “Switching Between the Macintosh and
s
Apple IIe Environments.” ▲
1. If your Macintosh LC is on, shut it down.
Quit any programs you might be running and choose Shut Down
from the Special menu. You don’t need to turn off the power.
36
Chapter 3: Learning to Use the Apple IIe Card
2. While the computer is shut down, insert your copy of the
IIe Startup Disk into the built-in disk drive.
Make sure the disk is not locked.
3. Turn on the Macintosh LC.
If you see a Restart button on your screen, click it.
You’ve just started up from the IIe Startup Disk, so you can run Apple IIe
programs and manipulate Apple IIe files until you shut down or restart
the Macintosh LC.
Why you need to start up
from the IIe Startup Disk
This section explains why you need to start up from the IIe Startup Disk
to work with Apple IIe files or programs. (If you’re not interested, you
can skip this section.)
Normally, Macintosh computers can’t recognize Apple IIe disks. (In fact,
if you insert an Apple IIe disk into a normal Macintosh, the Macintosh
asks if you want to erase it.) To be able to recognize Apple IIe disks, your
Macintosh needs a special startup document, called ProDOS File System,
in the System Folder it uses to start up.
If you’re a floppy disk startup person, either you don’t have a hard disk
or the System Folder on your hard disk doesn’t contain this special file.
However, the System Folder on the IIe Startup Disk does contain it.
When you restart the computer with the IIe Startup Disk in the disk
drive, the ProDOS File System document is loaded, enabling the
Macintosh to recognize Apple IIe files.

Apple IIe programs and files for a while, you may want to return to using
your usual startup disk. To do so, choose Restart from the Special menu.
Summary
Running an
Apple IIe Program
To enter the Apple IIe environment, just start up from the correct
disk and double-click the IIe Startup icon. To return to the Macintosh
environment, open the Option Panel by pressing Control-x-Esc and
then click the Quit IIe button.
There are two ways to start running Apple IIe programs. One way works
if you’re in the Macintosh environment; the other way works if you’re in
the Apple IIe environment.
This section has two exercises—one to illustrate each method.
Depending on your setup, you may be able to complete only one
of them.
Method 1: Double-clicking
a Macintosh icon
When you are in the Macintosh environment, you can launch
Apple IIe programs the same way you launch Macintosh programs—
by double-clicking an icon.
Can you do the double-click exercise?
To do this exercise, you must have an Apple IIe program on a 3.5-inch
ProDOS disk. The program must not be copy-protected.
You must also have one empty disk drive. Consequently, you cannot do
this exercise if you’re a floppy disk startup person who has only one
floppy disk drive.
If you can’t do this exercise, skip ahead to “Method 2: Restarting the
Apple IIe Card.”
Chapter 3: Learning to Use the Apple IIe Card
41
The double-click exercise
Follow these steps to launch an Apple IIe program by double-clicking
its icon.
Before you begin: You’ll need one of your own Apple IIe program disks
to complete this exercise. Also, your Macintosh should be on, you should
be in the Macintosh environment, and you should quit any programs you
might be running.
1. If you’re a floppy disk startup person, make sure you’ve
started up from the IIe Startup Disk.
See the instructions in “Starting Up From the IIe Startup Disk,”
at the beginning of this chapter.
2. Find one of your Apple IIe program disks.
If you want to use one of the Macintosh computer’s built-in disk
drives, the program should be on a ProDOS disk and it should not
be copy-protected.
3. Insert the disk into a built-in disk drive.
The disk’s icon appears on the desktop.
4. Open the icon of the disk you just inserted.
Double-click the icon to open it.
42
Chapter 3: Learning to Use the Apple IIe Card
5. Choose “by Icon” from the View menu.

have this icon.
After a moment, the program appears on the screen.
7. Use the program as you wish.
8. When you’re ready to quit, save your work and return to the
Macintosh environment.
Press Control-x-Esc and click the Quit IIe button.
In short, you can run Apple IIe programs by double-clicking their icons.
(Remember, to see the icons you must be in the Macintosh environment,
and the program must be on a ProDOS disk. Some copy-protected
programs may not work.)
Chapter 3: Learning to Use the Apple IIe Card

Method 2: Restarting the
Apple IIe Card
You can also run Apple IIe programs in any of the usual Apple IIe ways.
This exercise demonstrates one of these methods.
Before you begin: You’ll need one of your own Apple IIe program disks
to complete this exercise. Also, your Macintosh should be on, you should
be in the Macintosh environment, and you should quit any programs you
might be running. Finally, if you have a floppy disk in a 5.25-inch disk
drive, eject it.
1. If you’re a floppy disk startup person, make sure you’ve
started up from the IIe Startup Disk.

Practicing moving the cards
in the Option Panel
In this section, you’ll practice moving cards. In the next chapter, you
will use these skills to move the cards into the appropriate slots. On
your Macintosh LC, you can install and move Apple IIe cards simply
by dragging icons on the screen.
Before you begin: Make sure the Apple IIe Option Panel is still
displayed on your screen.
1. Scroll down the list of icons and click the Slots icon.
The Slot Configuration panel appears.
These icons
represent Apple IIe
accessory cards.
These bins represent
Apple IIe slots.
These bins hold
spare cards.
In your original Apple IIe computer, you would have had to move the
cards by actually opening the case and physically pulling them out and
putting them into different slots. With the Option Panel, all you have
to do is drag the icons with your mouse. ( Wait until the next step to
try it.)

Managing
Apple IIe files
When you’re in the Macintosh environment, you can treat Apple IIe
programs and other files as if they were ordinary Macintosh files,
provided the files are on a hard disk or a 3.5-inch disk. To copy files
to or from a 5.25-inch disk, you must use an Apple IIe copy program.
Follow the steps in this section to see how similar manipulating Apple IIe
files is to manipulating Macintosh files.
Before you begin: Make sure you’re in the Macintosh environment.
Quit any programs you might be running. Also, have at hand any of your
unlocked old Apple IIe program disks. The disk must be a 3.5-inch
ProDOS disk.
1. If you’re a floppy disk startup person, make sure you’ve
started up from the IIe Startup Disk.
See the instructions in “Starting Up From the IIe Startup Disk,” at the
beginning of this chapter.
2. Insert a 3.5-inch ProDOS Apple IIe program disk into a built-in
disk drive.
You can use any 3.5-inch ProDOS disk so long as it isn’t copyprotected.
❖
Don’t have an empty disk drive? Eject a disk by pressing x-Shift-1.
Even though the disk you inserted is an Apple IIe disk, it appears on
the desktop just as Macintosh disks do.
3. Open the disk by double-clicking its icon.
Its window appears.
54
Chapter 3: Learning to Use the Apple IIe Card
❖
4. Choose “by Icon” from the View menu.
For example, the Utilities disk for the Apple IIe looks like this:
Program files and
system files look
like this.
Other files look
like this.
5. Choose “by Size” from the View menu.
The window changes to show a list of all the files. The biggest files
are at the top of the list, the smallest at the bottom.
6. Click the file at the bottom of the list once to select it.
You may have to use the scroll bar to find it.
After you click it, the icon is highlighted.
7. Choose Duplicate from the File menu.
The file is duplicated and the copy’s icon is highlighted.
8. Drag the icon of the new file to the Trash.
9. Drag the icon at the bottom of the list to the icon of your
startup disk.
Your startup disk is at the top-right corner of your screen.
Dragging the icon causes the file to be copied.
10. If you like, drag the new icon to the Trash.
To see the new icon (so you can drag it to the Trash), you may first
have to open your disk by double-clicking its icon.

Naming files on
Apple IIe disks
Using Macintosh programs
with Apple IIe files
When you’re in the Macintosh environment, you can only give files on
Apple IIe disks legal ProDOS names, with two exceptions:
■
You can use spaces in the names. When you view a filename that
contains spaces in the Apple IIe environment, the spaces are
automatically converted to periods. For example, the name “MY FILE”
in the Macintosh environment would appear as “MY.FILE” in the
Apple IIe environment.
■
You can use lowercase letters in the names. When you view a filename
that contains lowercase letters in the Apple IIe environment, the
letters are automatically converted to uppercase. For example, the
name “File” in the Macintosh environment would appear as “FILE”
in the Apple IIe environment.
You may be able to use your Macintosh programs to view and edit your
Apple IIe files. For example, if you wrote a letter using an Apple IIe
program, you might be able to edit the letter with your Macintosh word
processor.
For more details, see “Using Apple IIe Files With Macintosh Programs”
in Chapter 5.

Chapter 3: Learning to Use the Apple IIe Card
Chapter 4
Setting Up Cards and Slots
B
efore you begin using your Apple IIe Card in earnest, you must
go to the Option Panel and set up the cards and slots to reflect your
own needs.
In this chapter you will
■
decide how you want to arrange your cards and slots
■
go to the Option Panel and arrange the cards according to your needs
■
set any options required by the cards you’ve installed
57
Deciding how to
arrange the cards in
the Option Panel
In this section, you will plan which Option Panel cards to put in which
Option Panel slots. To work properly, Apple IIe programs must know
where various cards are installed. For example, in order to print,
Apple IIe programs must know where the Printer Card is. Furthermore,
some programs may require certain cards to be in certain slots.
Your Apple IIe programs may have special requirements; this section
tells you how to convert those special needs into a plan for arranging
the cards.
You can go about creating your plan in one of two ways:
58
■
Base your plan on how accessory cards are installed in your
original Apple IIe. If you have an Apple IIe computer with a number
of accessory cards installed, you should arrange the cards in the
Option Panel similarly, as described in the following section, “Basing
the Plan on Your Original Apple IIe.”
■
Base your plan on the typical arrangement used by a typical
Apple IIe user. If you don’t have an Apple IIe computer or if you
prefer to start from scratch, skip ahead to the next section, called
“Basing the Plan on a Typical Apple IIe.”
Chapter 4: Setting Up Cards and Slots
Basing the plan on your
original Apple IIe
If you already have an Apple IIe computer, you’ve probably taken care
to arrange the cards so that they work well with all your programs.
In this section, you will use paper and pencil to write down the way your
Apple IIe accessory cards are currently installed and then modify
this arrangement to work in your Macintosh LC.
In this section, you only write down your plans. You’ll implement the
plans later in this chapter.
1. Write down the way the accessory cards are arranged in your
Apple IIe.
For example, one Apple IIe owner may have written the following:
Sample User
SLOT 1. Super Serial-Printer
SLOT 2. Super Serial-Modem
SLOT 3. MONITOR (built-in)
SLOT 4. Empty
SLOT 5. Empty
SLOT 6. Empty
SLOT 7. Workstation Card
The third slot in your Apple IIe computer may not have an accessory
card installed in it; but even so, it serves as the monitor accessory card.
continues >
Chapter 4: Setting Up Cards and Slots
59
2. If you have a Super Serial Card connected to a printer, scratch
it out and write “Printer Card” instead.
The Printer Card is a special card that allows you to select the printer
you want by using the Macintosh Chooser desk accessory.
Sample User
SLOT 1. Super Serial-Printer Printer Card
SLOT 2. Super Serial-Modem
SLOT 3. MONITOR (built-in)
SLOT 4. Empty
SLOT 5. Empty
SLOT 6. Empty
SLOT 7. Workstation Card
3. Scratch out the following Apple IIe names and replace them
with the new Option Panel names.
60
Original Apple IIe Name
New Option Panel Name
Apple IIe Workstation Card
AppleShare
Apple IIe Memory
Expansion Card

Chapter 4: Setting Up Cards and Slots
For example, a user who had the Apple IIe Workstation Card in slot 7
would scratch it out and write in “AppleShare” instead:
Sample User
SLOT 1. Super Serial-Printer Printer Card
SLOT 2. Super Serial-Modem
SLOT 3. MONITOR (built-in)
SLOT 4. Empty
SLOT 5. Empty
SLOT 6. Empty
SLOT 7. Workstation Card AppleShare
s
▲ Important: Your new Apple IIe Card can provide the functions of
almost all the standard Apple IIe accessory cards. Unfortunately, there
are a few specialized accessory cards that it cannot replace. If you have
an accessory card not mentioned in this section or listed in this
s
table, you won’t be able to install it in the Macintosh LC. ▲
continues >
Chapter 4: Setting Up Cards and Slots
61
4. Fill in empty slots with any unused Option Panel cards you
think might be useful.
Unlike the accessory cards for your original Apple IIe, the Option
Panel cards are provided at no additional cost, so you should use as
many as you can. Use this chart to decide which Option Panel cards
would be the most useful; use your Apple IIe program manuals to
decide which slots to put them in.

5. Skip ahead to “Arranging the Cards in the Option Panel”
in this chapter.

Chapter 4: Setting Up Cards and Slots
Basing the plan on
a typical Apple IIe
When you first install the Apple IIe Card software, the cards are already
installed in one of the most typical arrangements. You should use this
arrangement as the basis of your plans. Write it down on a piece of paper
(as shown in the figure), and then change it according to the instructions
that follow.
Typical IIe
SLOT 1. Printer Card
SLOT 2. Clock Card
SLOT 3. MONITOR (built-in)
SLOT 4. Mouse Card
SLOT 5. SmartPort
SLOT 6. 5.25 Card
SLOT 7. Memory Card
Many people can use this basic arrangement just as it is. However, if you
have any of the following special requirements, you may have to shuffle
the cards, as explained in the next two sections:
■
File servers. The “File Servers” section explains how to rearrange
your cards if you’re connected to a file server.
■
Modems and other serial devices except for printers. The
“Modems and Other Serial Devices Except for Printers” section
explains how to rearrange your cards if you’re connected to any
non-printer serial device.
If you don’t have either of these special needs, skip to “Setting the
Options for Your Cards,” later in this chapter.
Chapter 4: Setting Up Cards and Slots
63
File servers
If you want to use a file server, you need the AppleShare card. The
AppleShare card is usually installed in slot 7. (See your Apple IIe
program manuals to determine whether your programs have different
requirements.)
To install the AppleShare card, you’ll have to remove one of the others.
Since the AppleShare card typically goes in slot 7, the most tempting
card to remove is the Memory Card, which is already there. If you want
to move it, here are some suggestions where you might move the
Memory Card:
■
Slot 2, replacing the Clock Card. If none of your programs uses it, you
can remove the Clock Card. However, if you have a modem, you’ll
probably need slot 2 for the modem port Serial Card.
■
Slot 4, replacing the Mouse Card. If none of your programs uses a
mouse, you can remove the Mouse Card.
Use this information to change the plans you wrote down earlier.
Modems and other serial devices except for printers
Serial devices are devices, such as a modem, that plug into the printer
port or the modem port on the back of the Macintosh.
❖
64
Why not printers? The most common serial device plugged into the
back of the Macintosh is a printer. However, printers require the
special Printer Card, which is already installed into slot 1—so you
don’t need to do anything special to arrange to print. The only
exception to this rule is old non-Apple serial printers that are
commonly used with Apple IIe computers. These printers still require
the Serial Cards. ❖
Chapter 4: Setting Up Cards and Slots
To support a non-printing serial device, you need either of the two
serial cards:
■
If you have a non-printing device plugged into the modem port,
you need the Serial Card with a phone icon on it.
■
If you have a non-printing device plugged into the printer port, you
need the Serial Card with a printer icon on it. ( You’ll have to make
sure AppleTalk is turned off in the Macintosh Chooser to use your
device.)
Serial Cards are most commonly placed in slot 2. See your Apple IIe
program manuals to determine whether your programs have different
requirements.
Use this information to change the plans you wrote down earlier.
Arranging the cards in
the Option Panel
Now that you have your plans written down, you’ll use the Option Panel
to move the cards according to your plan.
Before you begin: Make sure your Macintosh LC is turned on and
you’re in the Macintosh environment. Also, make sure that you’ve written
down your plans as described earlier in this chapter.
1. If you’re a floppy disk startup person, make sure you’ve
started up from the IIe Startup Disk.
See the instructions in “Starting Up From the IIe Startup Disk,” at the
beginning of Chapter 3.
2. Double-click the IIe Startup icon.
You enter the Apple IIe environment.
3. Press Control-x-Esc to open the Option Panel.

Your changes don’t go into effect until you restart the Apple IIe.
Your cards are now installed. However, some of the cards you’ve installed
may not work until you adjust some of their settings, as explained in the
next section.
Setting the options
for your cards
Some cards have settings you can adjust. The two Serial Cards require
special attention: They won’t work until you declare what sort of device
is connected to them.
This chapter does not explain how to adjust the settings. That
information is available in great detail in Chapter 5, “Reference.” ( You can
use the index or table of contents to find the exact page numbers.)
However, the following table lists the ten cards you might have installed

his chapter provides instructions for using all the features of the
Apple IIe Card and the IIe Startup program.
This is a task-oriented reference chapter. That is, you don’t need to read
its sections consecutively. When you need some specific information
about using the Apple IIe Card or the IIe Startup program, just look up
the task you want to accomplish and follow the step-by-step instructions
you find there.

▲ Important: If you haven’t learned how to use the Apple IIe Card
and the IIe Startup program yet, you might prefer to go first through
Chapter 3, “Learning to Use the Apple IIe Card.” Chapter 3 is a tutorial
that guides you step by step through some exercises in running
s
Apple IIe programs on the Macintosh LC. ▲
69
Starting up the
IIe Startup program
You must start up the IIe Startup program before you can run Apple IIe
programs on the Macintosh LC.
To start up the IIe Startup program, follow these steps:
Before you begin: Turn on your Macintosh LC. If your Macintosh is
already on, return to the Finder (either by quitting any programs you
might be running or by choosing Finder from the Application menu
or the Apple menu).
1. Determine whether you are a floppy disk startup person
or a hard disk startup person.
How you set up the software in Chapter 2 determines whether you’re
a floppy disk or a hard disk startup person. You may have recorded
which you are on the Quick Reference card in the back of the manual.
If you can’t remember, here’s how to tell:
■
If you do not have a hard disk you are a floppy disk startup
person.
■
If you have a hard disk, open the System Folder by double-clicking
it. If the System Folder contains a file called “ProDOS File System,”
you are a hard disk startup person. Otherwise, you are a floppy
disk startup person. The file may be inside the Extensions Folder
within the System Folder.
2. If you are a floppy disk startup person, start up your
Macintosh LC from the IIe Startup Disk.
To start up from the disk, follow these steps: (a) choose Shut Down
from the Special menu, but don’t turn the power off; (b) insert the
IIe Startup Disk; (c) use the mouse to click the Restart button.
70
Chapter 5: Reference
3. Open your startup disk by double-clicking its icon.
The startup disk is the top icon on the right side of the screen.
Double-click
whatever icon is
in this corner.
( Yours may look
different.)
4. Double-click the IIe Startup icon to start the program.
Double-click this
icon to switch to
the Apple IIe
environment.
The IIe Startup program uses the startup setting in the Slot Configuration
panel to locate a program disk. If a specific slot is designated as the
startup slot, IIe Startup goes directly to the first drive assigned to that
slot. If the startup option is set to Scan, the program scans the slots,
in descending order from 7 to 1. The first startup disk it encounters is
loaded into the computer’s main memory, and you see the opening
display for the program on that disk.
Chapter 5: Reference
71
If IIe Startup encounters a non-startup disk in the startup drive, you see
the message “UNABLE TO BOOT FROM STARTUP SLOT.” The program
enters the BASIC programming environment and presents the BASIC
prompt.
If IIe Startup finds no startup disk in any drive, it enters the BASIC
programming environment and presents the BASIC prompt.
See the section “Changing the Startup Device” later in this chapter for
more information on designating a startup drive.

72
Chapter 5: Reference
Going directly to the
Apple IIe Option Panel
If you want the Option Panel to open as soon as the IIe Startup program
launches, hold down the Option key just after you double-click the
IIe Startup icon. Keep the Option key held down until the Option Panel
opens.
Double-clicking the
IIe Prefs file
The IIe Startup program creates and maintains a file called the IIe Prefs
file, which records all the choices you make in the Option Panel. Doubleclicking the IIe Prefs icon causes the computer to switch to the Apple IIe
environment, just as double-clicking the IIe Startup icon does.
The icon for the
preferences file
When you double-click a preferences file, it reads the preferences from
that file, which is useful if you have more than one preferences file, as
explained in the next section.
Chapter 5: Reference
73
Using more than one
preferences file
The IIe Prefs file created by the IIe Startup program keeps track of the
settings you make in the Apple IIe Option Panel. You choose settings to
match the requirements of the Apple IIe programs you run. Normally,
one configuration of card and slot settings is sufficient for performing
your work. However, if you use two or more programs that require
different slot configurations, you can create a separate preferences file for
each program. Each preferences file can maintain the configuration of
card and slot settings appropriate for a single program, so you won’t have
to change settings each time you move from one program to another.
Follow these steps to create and maintain more than one preferences file:
1. Start up the IIe Startup program.
Double-click the IIe Startup icon.
2. Open the Apple IIe Option Panel (by pressing Control-x-Esc).
3. Select the settings you want to maintain in the first
IIe Prefs file.
4. Quit the IIe Startup program (by clicking the Quit IIe button).
5. Rename the first IIe Prefs file.
The name you give the file can be anything but “IIe Prefs.” Rename
the file in a way that will help you remember its purpose—“Graphics
Prefs,” “Charts Prefs,” or “Games Prefs,” for instance.
6. Start up the IIe Startup program and open the Option
Panel again.
7. Select the settings you want to maintain in the second
IIe Prefs file.
8. Quit the IIe Startup program (by clicking the Quit IIe button).
74
Chapter 5: Reference
Each time IIe Startup restarts the Apple IIe Card, it creates a new IIe Prefs
file, unless there is already a file named “IIe Prefs” on the disk. You can
create as many different preferences files as you want, as long as you
keep renaming the most recently created IIe Prefs file. Once you’ve made
as many preferences files as you need, you can choose the IIe Prefs file
you want to work with by double-clicking its icon to start the Apple IIe
Card. As long as you don’t change any settings, the file you start from will
remain unchanged when you quit the IIe Startup program.
You can store the IIe Prefs file in one of three places. The IIe Startup
program searches for the IIe Prefs file in this order: in the System Folder;
in the Preferences folder, which is itself in the System Folder; then in the
folder where the IIe Startup program is.
Starting up an
Apple IIe program
You can start up an Apple IIe program either in a standard Macintosh way
or in a standard Apple IIe way, whichever is easier for you.
The Macintosh way
When you’re in the Macintosh environment, you can start up Apple IIe
programs by double-clicking their icons, though this method works only
for ProDOS programs.
s
▲ Important: You can use this method of starting Apple IIe programs only
if you have an empty disk drive while the IIe Startup program is running.
In other words, floppy disk startup people who have only one internal
s
disk drive cannot use this method. All others can. ▲
Chapter 5: Reference
75
Before you begin: Your Macintosh should be on. If you’re a floppy
disk startup person you should start up from the IIe Startup Disk, as
explained in “Starting Up From the IIe Startup Disk” in Chapter 3.
1. Find your Apple IIe program.
If the program is on your hard disk, open the hard disk and folders
so you can see the program’s icon. If the program is on a floppy disk,
insert the disk into an empty disk drive and open the disk so you can
see the program’s icon.
2. Double-click the program’s icon.
Apple IIe program names often have a period and the word “SYSTEM”
after them. Their icons look like this:
Apple IIe programs
have this icon.
(To see full-size icons like this one, choose “by Icon” from the
View menu.)
After you double-click, the IIe Startup program opens and your
Apple IIe program is launched.
The Apple IIe way
When you are in the Apple IIe environment, you start up Apple IIe
programs the same way you would on an Apple IIe:
1. If you have only one disk drive, press x-Shift-1 to eject the
IIe Startup Disk from the built-in disk drive.
If you plan to start up the Apple IIe program from another drive,
you don’t need to eject the IIe Startup Disk.
To eject a disk from a second built-in floppy disk drive, press
x-Shift-2.
76
Chapter 5: Reference
2. Insert the disk containing the Apple IIe program you want to
run into a disk drive.
If a particular slot has already been designated as the startup slot in
the Slot Configuration panel, insert the disk into a drive controlled
through that slot.
3. Press x-Control-Reset.
Pressing x-Control-Reset resets the Apple IIe Card and restarts the
IIe Startup program. IIe Startup uses the startup setting in the Slot
Configuration panel to locate a program disk. If a specific slot is
designated as the startup slot, IIe Startup goes directly to that slot.
If the startup option is set to Scan, the program scans the slots in
descending order from 7 to 1. The first startup disk it encounters is
loaded into the computer’s main memory, and you see the opening
display for the program you’re running.
If IIe Startup encounters a non-startup disk in the startup drive, you
see the message “UNABLE TO BOOT FROM STARTUP SLOT.” The
program enters the BASIC programming environment and presents
a BASIC prompt.
If IIe Startup finds no startup disk in any drive, it enters the BASIC
programming environment and presents a BASIC prompt.
From the BASIC programming environment, you can start up a
program disk by typing a BASIC instruction that directs IIe Startup
to the disk drive you indicate.
4. Type pr# followed by the number of the slot to which the
startup drive is assigned.
The most typical instructions are pr#5 for 3.5-inch disk drives and
pr#6 for 5.25-inch disk drives.
Chapter 5: Reference
77
Printing from
Apple IIe programs
To print Apple IIe files, use the programs’ print commands just as you
would if you were using an Apple IIe. When you print through the Printer
Card, you should set your Apple IIe program to treat the printer as if it’s
an ImageWriter II, even if it’s not. You may notice a pause before printing
begins. If the program has a command that you can use to stop the
printer from printing, it may not stop printing the instant you issue the
command.
s
▲ Important: Macintosh screen saver programs may interfere with
Apple IIe programs while they are printing. If the screen saver causes a
problem, turn off the screen saver or increase the amount of time before
it turns on. Also, you should avoid opening the Option Panel when
s
printing. ▲
Choosing a printer
To select the printer you want to use, or to change printers, use the
Macintosh desk accessory called the Chooser.
Before you begin: Your Macintosh should be on. If you’re a floppy
disk startup person you should start up from the IIe Startup Disk,
as explained in “Starting Up From the IIe Startup Disk” in Chapter 3.
1. If you’re in the Apple IIe environment, open the Option Panel
by pressing Control-x-Esc.
If you’re in the Macintosh environment, you need to do nothing.

Using Apple IIe files
with Macintosh
programs
Sometimes you may wish to transfer information from Apple IIe
programs to Macintosh programs. You can do so, provided you can find
a file format that both programs understand or you have a Macintosh
program that can read Apple IIe files directly.
For example, say you typed a long text passage using an Apple IIe
program and now you want to use the same text in a speech you’re
writing using a powerful Macintosh word processor. Most word
processors can read “text-only” files (also called ASCII files). To transfer
the text, you could (a) use an Apple IIe program to save the file in
text-only format, then (b) use the Macintosh program to open the file.
In general, follow these steps:
Before you begin: Your Macintosh should be on. If you’re a floppy
disk startup person you should start up from the IIe Startup Disk, as
explained in “Starting up From the IIe Startup Disk” in Chapter 3.
1. Check the manuals of both the Apple IIe and Macintosh
programs to determine what file format, if any, the two
programs share.
Typical file types that Apple IIe and Macintosh programs might
share depend on what the programs do. For example, spreadsheet
programs might share a tab-delimited type and word-processing
programs might share a text-only type.
Unfortunately, you may not find shared file formats to exchange
pictures. If you can’t find one, see the next section, “Copying
Apple IIe Pictures,” which offers an alternative strategy.
continues >
Chapter 5: Reference
81
2. Open the Apple IIe file using an Apple IIe program.
Switch to the Apple IIe environment and use your Apple IIe program
to open the file.
3. Save the file in the shared format, giving it a new name.
See the program’s instructions for information on how to save files in
different formats.
4. Return to the Macintosh environment.
Press Control-x-Esc and click the Quit IIe button.
5. Open the Macintosh program you want to use.
6. Choose the Open command from the File menu.
7. Use the Open dialog box to select the Apple IIe file.
Click the Drive or Desktop button to select the correct disk and
double-click folders to open them. For more information on using
the Open dialog box, see the reference book that came with your
Macintosh.
❖
82
Can’t see your file? If you can’t see the file, you may not be looking in
the correct folder or on the correct disk. If you are, you may not have
saved the Apple IIe file in a format that your Macintosh program can
understand. Some Macintosh programs have special ways of opening
so-called “foreign” files. See the manual that came with the Macintosh
program for more details. ❖

Copying Apple IIe pictures
If you want to transfer an Apple IIe picture to a Macintosh program, you
can copy and paste the picture as described in these steps:
1. Use your Apple IIe program to display the picture on your
screen.
2. Save your work, if necessary.
3. Press Control-x-Esc to open the Option Panel.
The Option Panel opens.
4. Choose the Copy IIe Screen command from the Edit menu.
5. Click the Quit IIe button.
When asked if you really want to quit, click Quit IIe again.
6. Open the Macintosh file in which you want to place the
picture.
7. Choose the Paste command from the Edit menu.
The picture is pasted in.
If you have more than one Apple IIe picture to transfer at the same time,
you may wish to use the Macintosh desk accessory called the Scrapbook.
For more information, see the reference book that came with your
Macintosh.

Using network
file servers
If your Macintosh LC is connected to a file server over a network, you
can use it just as you did with your original Apple IIe: you can start
up from the file server and access files on it, as the next two sections
explain. Note, however, that you cannot start up from a private
Macintosh computer, even if it is sharing its files. (File sharing is a
new feature in version 7 of Macintosh system software.)
Starting up from
the file server
With your Apple IIe computer, you could start up from a file server.
When you’re in the Apple IIe environment, you can do the same with
your Macintosh LC and your Apple IIe Card. In fact, the method is
the same as before.
Before you begin, make sure the following preparations have been made:
84
■
Your network administrator, the person who installs and maintains
your network and your file server, has connected everyone to the
network and prepared the file server as described in the instructions
that come with the AppleShare Workstation Card and the AppleShare
File Server server software.
■
You have used the Option Panel to install the AppleShare card into
one of the slots, as explained in Chapter 4, “Setting Up Cards and
Slots.”
■
You have set the startup device either to Scan or to the slot in which
the AppleShare card is installed. The AppleShare card is usually
installed in slot 7.
Chapter 5: Reference
The AppleShare
card should
be installed
(usually in slot 7).
Startup should be
set either to Scan
or to the slot in
which AppleShare
is installed
(usually slot 7).
From now on, whenever you start or restart the Apple IIe, you’ll follow
the usual network log-on procedure, as described in the instructions that
come with the AppleShare Workstation Card and the AppleShare File
Server software.
Using files from
the file server
Using Apple IIe files on a network file server with a Macintosh LC and the
Apple IIe Card is the same as using them on an Apple IIe computer. You
simply use the Logon program, as described in the instructions that come
with the AppleShare Workstation Card.
Chapter 5: Reference
85
Personalizing your
Apple IIe work
environment
You use the Apple IIe Option Panel to adjust some aspects of the
Apple IIe Card’s operation. Most of the adjustments are made in the
General Controls panel, the panel that appears automatically whenever
you open the Option Panel.
Most of the settings in the General Controls panel take effect
immediately and remain active whenever you start up the IIe Startup
program, until you change them again.
Changing the
processing speed setting
You can change the processing speed of the Apple IIe Card. The Option
Panel provides two Speed settings: normal and fast. The Normal setting
represents the normal processing speed for an Apple IIe computer. The
Fast setting is up to twice as fast as the Normal setting. (The actual speed
varies among programs, depending on a number of factors—principally,
the amount of graphics processing a program requires.)
Depending on the type of program you’re running, you may benefit from
changing the Speed setting. For instance, a spreadsheet program would
benefit from the added processing speed by performing calculations
more quickly. Other programs, however, may be less effective running
under the Fast setting. For instance, many games may run too quickly.
And programs that require precise time-interval measurements—such as
music programs— may need the normal Apple IIe processing speed to
run properly.
If you’re uncertain what Speed setting is most appropriate for the
program you want to run, try the Fast setting first. If the program doesn’t
run as expected, change the setting back to Normal.
86

Choosing a
startup beep sound
Your computer beeps when you start up the Apple IIe Card. Also,
many programs are designed to play a sound when an alert message
is displayed, or when you give a command that the computer
cannot recognize.
You can choose one of several options for the beep sound. You can
choose the same beep sound you hear on an Apple IIe computer, the
standard Macintosh beep, or any other sound that appears in the Startup
Beep Sound box. To avoid annoying delays, it’s a good idea to choose a
short sound. The Apple IIe Option Panel is preset to use the standard
Apple IIe beep.
To choose a startup beep sound, follow these steps:
1. Press Control-x-Esc.
The Option Panel appears, with the General Controls panel displayed.
The pointer changes to a crosshair when you place it in the General
Controls panel.
Choose a startup
beep sound here.
If you are a floppy disk startup person, you have only two beeps to
choose from.

2. Scroll if necessary to find the name of the beep sound you
want, then click the name.
The sounds displayed in the box represent the sound files contained
in the Macintosh System file. Any sound you add to your Macintosh
System file is available as an Apple IIe beep.
When you release the mouse button, the selected sound plays.
After you close the Option Panel, your choice remains in effect until you
choose a different beep sound.
You can add your own beep sounds by using the Macintosh Sound
control panel and the microphone that came with your Macintosh LC.

not beep while in the Apple IIe environment. ▲
Setting the keys’ repeat rate
On all Macintosh keyboards, holding down a character key causes the
character to appear repeatedly on the screen until you release the key.
You can adjust the rate of repetition from very slow to quite fast. (To turn
off the key repeat option, see the next section, “Setting the Delay Before
Keys Repeat.”)
The repeat rate you choose in the Apple IIe Option Panel is in effect only
while the computer is in the Apple IIe environment. When you switch to
the Macintosh environment, the repeat rate is determined by the key
repeat rate setting in the Macintosh Keyboard control panel.
The key repeat rate in the Apple IIe General Controls panel is preset to
the rate setting in the Macintosh Keyboard controls panel.

Changing the
Type Ahead setting
You use the Type Ahead feature to type text and commands while the
Apple IIe program is busy with some other activity. Even though you may
not see the text immediately on the screen, what you type is stored in a
type-ahead buffer, an area of memory reserved for keeping track of what
you type.
Some programs do not perform correctly when the Type Ahead feature
is on. If the keyboard seems unresponsive in a particular program,
or if certain keys don’t work as expected, try turning the Type Ahead
feature off.
To change the Type Ahead setting, follow these steps:

Changing the
Display setting
If you have a color monitor, you can choose between a color or
monochrome display. Even with a color monitor, however, there are
times when working in monochrome is an advantage. First, because of
the manner in which the Apple IIe produces color, you may see “color
fringing”—a slight color cast around the edges of text characters. If so,
switching to monochrome avoids the problem.
❖
By the way: You can improve the computer’s processing
performance in the Apple IIe environment if you set the Display
setting to Monochrome in the Option Panel. ❖

Changing the
mouse tracking rate
You can adjust the correlation between mouse and pointer movement,
called mouse tracking, so that the pointer moves the same distance on
the screen as the mouse moves, or so that the pointer moves up to two
times as far on the screen as the mouse moves, depending on how fast
you move the mouse.
The mouse tracking rate you choose in the Apple IIe Option Panel is in
effect only while the computer is in the Apple IIe environment. When
you switch to the Macintosh environment, the mouse tracking rate is
determined by the rate setting in the Macintosh Mouse control panel.
The mouse tracking rate in the Apple IIe Option Panel is preset to the
rate setting in the Macintosh Mouse control panel.
The options for tracking are
■
Slow—the mouse and the pointer move the same distance
■
Fast—the pointer moves twice as far as the mouse
■
Buttons between Slow and Fast—gradations between one-for-one and
two-for-one pointer and mouse movements

Configuring
cards and slots
Many Apple IIe programs are designed to look for certain kinds of
hardware, or cards, in specific locations, or slots, in the computer. Since
the Macintosh LC isn’t an actual Apple IIe, it doesn’t provide these slots,
nor does it contain the cards. Instead, the Macintosh LC uses software
representations of the slots and cards to simulate the hardware
configurations of an Apple IIe.
The settings in the Apple IIe Option Panel are preset to the
configurations most commonly used by Apple IIe programs. You may
never need to change any of these settings.
Changing the Memory
Expansion Card size
Many Apple IIe programs work more efficiently with access to additional
memory. The Apple IIe Option Panel lets you add additional memory by
designating a portion of the Macintosh LC computer’s available memory
for Apple IIe programs. Apple IIe programs interpret this extra memory
as an Apple II Memory Expansion Card.
The Memory Expansion Card panel lets you set the size of the Apple II
Memory Expansion Card. The size may be set in 256K increments up to a
maximum size of 1024K (1 megabyte).

and experience problems receiving data (if data is missing after a
transmission, for instance), you may be able to solve the problem and
still use a higher baud rate by opening the Option Panel and selecting
Monochrome in the General Controls panel.
Making changes to
the Printer Card
If you are connected to a printer, even if the printer is connected over

are not working with 5.25-inch disks, you can speed up your work by
temporarily disabling your 5.25 Drives. To do so, open the Apple IIe
Option Panel, and click the Slots icon to open the Slot Configuration
panel. Then drag the icon representing the disk controller card from
slot 6 to a Spare Card slot. This makes the drives controlled through
slot 6 (that is, all the 5.25 Drives connected to your computer) inactive.
You must click Restart IIe to make the change take effect. To make the
drives active again, drag the icon from the Spare Card slot back to slot 6.
Changing the
SmartPort settings
SmartPort is the feature that lets you use 3.5-inch disk drives to run
Apple IIe software. Apple IIe programs access all 3.5-inch drives—
whether built-in disk drives or UniDisk 3.5 Drives connected to the
Macintosh LC—through SmartPort.
SmartPort also increases the number of drives accessible per slot in the
Apple IIe. The ProDOS operating system can normally access only two
disk drives per slot. However, with a SmartPort device in slot 5, ProDOS
can “borrow” two slot assignments from slot 2, provided there are no
storage devices in slot 2.
You can have up to four disk drives in active slot/drive locations. But
only one SmartPort device can be the startup device: the device in slot 5
drive 1. You change your startup drive by moving a disk drive icon from
another slot/drive assignment into slot 5 drive 1.
Although you can place disk drive icons in any slot and drive, SmartPort
automatically fills any gaps in the drive assignments, from left to right.
SmartPort does not allow any empty slots between disk drive icons.

Ejecting disks
To eject disks from their drives, use the Eject buttons. Two Eject buttons
appear in the bottom-left corner of the Apple IIe Option Panel. Either
one or both buttons are active, depending on the number of disk drives
you have in your computer system.
■
If your Macintosh LC contains only one built-in floppy disk drive, only
the right Eject button is active. The other button is dimmed.
■
If your Macintosh LC contains a second built-in floppy disk drive,
both Eject buttons are active. The left button represents the second
built-in drive.
To eject a disk from an external floppy disk drive connected to your
Macintosh LC, press the Disk Eject button on the UniDisk 3.5 Drive,
or open the disk drive door on the Apple 5.25 Drive.

environment, and between the Apple IIe environment and the Macintosh
desktop.
Opening the
Option Panel
To open the Option Panel from the Apple IIe environment, you must
press three keys at once: the Control key, the x (Command) key, and the
Escape key. This key combination is usually written Control-x-Esc. On
typical Macintosh keyboards, all three keys are on the bottom row.

program launches, hold down the Option key just after you double-click
the IIe Startup icon. Keep the Option key held down until the Option
Panel opens.
Limiting access to
the Option Panel
If you need to protect the Apple IIe Option Panel—in school labs
or in work areas where several users share the same computer, for
instance—you can do so in one of three ways, as explained in the next
three sections.
Locking the preferences file
While the preferences file is locked, users will not have access to any of
the panels used to change Option Panel settings, though they can still
click the Option Panel buttons. You can lock and unlock the preferences
file as often as you like.
116
Chapter 5: Reference
To lock the IIe Prefs file, follow these steps:
Before you begin: Make sure you’re in the Macintosh environment.
1. Select the IIe Prefs file by clicking its icon once.
2. Choose Get Info from the File menu.
3. Click the Locked checkbox until an X appears in it.
4. Close the Info window.
Click the close box.
Purchasing and installing an optional jumper cable
To protect the Option Panel settings more permanently, you can
purchase an optional jumper to use with the Apple IIe Card. Once your
dealer installs the jumper on the Macintosh LC logic board, users will still
have access to the Apple IIe Option Panel buttons, but they will not have
access to any of the panels used to change Option Panel settings. See
your authorized Apple dealer for more information.
Hiding the preferences file
To prevent someone from accidentally throwing away the IIe Prefs file,
you can move the file to the System Folder on your startup disk or to
the Preferences folder inside your System Folder.
If you’re a floppy disk startup person, drag the IIe Prefs file into the
System Folder on the IIe Startup Disk; if you’re a hard disk startup
person, drag the file into the System Folder on your hard disk.

Appendix B
Using a Hard Disk
Y
ou can use your hard disk to store Apple IIe files and programs, but
only if you create a ProDOS partition, as explained in “Reserving Hard
Disk Space for Apple IIe Files” in Chapter 1.
This appendix explains how to use the partition once you’ve created it.
Storing Apple IIe files
on a hard disk
If you’ve partitioned your hard disk as described in Chapter 1, storing
Apple IIe files on a hard disk is much like storing regular Macintosh files
on a hard disk.
Here’s a rule to help you avoid trouble using the two parts of your hard
disk: Store Macintosh files on the Macintosh partition and store Apple IIe
files on the Apple IIe partition.
146
Technically, the Macintosh will let you store either sort of file on either
sort of partition, but Apple IIe programs can’t see anything stored on a
Macintosh partition and Macintosh programs may not work well if they’re
stored on an Apple IIe partition.
In short, you’ll always be safe if you store Macintosh files on Macintosh
partitions and Apple IIe files on Apple IIe partitions.
Where to put
the software for
the Apple IIe Card
Manipulating
Apple IIe files on the
Macintosh desktop
The Apple IIe Card itself requires some software, which you installed in
Chapter 2. That software, including the IIe Startup program, belongs on
the Macintosh partition. You should also have a copy of BASIC.SYSTEM
and PRODOS on the Apple IIe partition.
You can copy, move, and throw away Apple IIe files just like other
Macintosh files, but only when you start up from a disk that has the
startup document ProDOS File System in the System Folder. ( You
learned how to install this file in “Installing the Software on Your Hard
Disk” in Chapter 2.)
In fact, you can only see your Apple IIe files if the ProDOS File System
icon is in the System Folder on your startup disk. If you are a floppy disk
startup person, as explained in Chapter 2, you must start up from the
IIe Startup Disk to see and manipulate Apple IIe files when in the
Macintosh environment.
If you create an Apple IIe partition on your hard disk as described in
Chapter 1, you will have two copies of the files BASIC.SYSTEM and
PRODOS—one copy on your Macintosh partition and one copy on your
Apple IIe partition. The copies on your Macintosh partition allow you to
start Apple IIe programs by double-clicking their icons. The copies on
your Apple IIe partition allow you to set the partition to be your Apple IIe
startup volume.
Appendix B: Using a Hard Disk
147
Which Apple IIe
programs work
on a hard disk
Not every Apple IIe program works well on a hard disk. The best way to
find out if a particular program works on your hard disk is to copy it
(and all of its accompanying files) to a folder on your Apple IIe partition
and try it.
Here’s some guidelines about which programs work well and which
don’t work at all on a hard disk:
148
■
If the manual for the program includes instructions for installing it
on a hard disk, it will probably work well on your Apple IIe partition.
■
If the program is copy-protected, it probably won’t work on a
hard disk.
■
DOS 3.3 and Pascal programs will not run on a hard disk.
Appendix B: Using a Hard Disk
Appendix C
Creating Custom Partitions
T
he section “Reserving Hard Disk Space for Apple IIe Files” in
Chapter 1 explains the easiest way to partition hard disks to store
Apple IIe files. However, that way creates a 10 MB Apple IIe partition.
If you need a larger or smaller partition, use the Custom feature of
Apple HD SC Setup, explained in this appendix.
These instructions work only for hard disks manufactured by Apple.
If your hard disk was manufactured by another company, contact the
company to see if they have similar software that can reserve space
for Apple IIe files.
149
Preparations
Before you can create a custom partition, you must back up your hard
disk and then start up the program called Apple HD SC Setup, as follows:
1. Back up your hard disk, as described in “Backing Up Your
Hard Disk” in Chapter 1.
2. Turn off your Macintosh.
3. Insert the IIe Installer Disk.
4. Turn on the Macintosh.
5. Open the IIe Installer Disk.
6. Double-click the Apple HD SC Setup icon.
7. Click the Drive button until you see the name of the hard disk
you want to partition.
8. Click Update.
9. Click the Partition button.
You’re now prepared to create the custom partition.
150
Appendix C: Creating Custom Partitions
The custom partition
You should now be looking at the partitioning window in Apple HD SC
Setup. To create a custom Apple IIe partition, follow these steps:
1. Click Custom.
2. Select the main partition.
Click once here
to select the
partition.
3. Click Remove, and when asked for confirmation, click OK.
4. Create a new partition by dragging, as shown in the figure.
Hold down the
mouse button
here and . . .
. . . drag to
about here.
continues >
Appendix C: Creating Custom Partitions
151
5. Click “Macintosh Volume.”
6. Type a number to indicate the size you want your Macintosh
partition to be.
For example, if you wanted to split a 40 MB hard disk into two equal
partitions, you would type 20000.
7. Click OK.
8. Create a second new partition by dragging.
Hold down the
mouse button
here and . . .
. . . drag all
the way to
the bottom.
152
Appendix C: Creating Custom Partitions
9. Click “ProDOS Volume,” then click OK.
10. When prompted, type a name for the partition.
ProDOS names can contain only numbers and letters. If you want to
create a second ProDOS partition, repeat steps 8 through 10.
You can have up to four separate ProDOS partitions. You must
always have one Macintosh partition. (If you don’t have a Macintosh
partition, you won’t be able to see the the hard disk’s icon when
you’re in the Macintosh environment.)
11. Click Done.
12. Click Quit.
You’re now ready to restore your files as described in “Restoring the
Contents of Your Hard Disk” in Chapter 1.
s
▲ Important: If you add a new ProDOS partition after you’ve started to
use the Apple IIe Card, check the SmartPort portion of the Apple IIe
Option Panel to make sure the old icons are still in the correct bins and
s
the new icon is where you want it. ▲

Appendix E
Installing Printer Software
for the IIe Startup Disk
I
f you are a floppy disk startup person, you must have the correct
printer software installed on the IIe Startup Disk. The disk has the
software for many Apple printers already installed. If your printer’s
software is not on the disk, you need to install it according to the
instructions in this appendix.
156
Is your printer’s
software already
installed?
The IIe Startup Disk comes with software for the following printers:
■
ImageWriter II (with or without AppleTalk)
■
All LaserWriter and LaserWriter II printers (except the LaserWriter SC
and the Personal LaserWriter printers)
If you have any of these printers, you do not have to continue with this
appendix. If your printer is not in this list, continue with the next section.
Printers connected to
original Apple IIe
computers
This section explains the details associated with using printers that have
previously been connected to an Apple IIe computer. If your printer was
purchased specifically for use with a Macintosh, skip this section and go
to “Installing Software for Your Printer.”
Some printers connected to your original Apple IIe can readily be
connected to your Macintosh LC, while others cannot:
■
Apple printers. If you have an ImageWriter printer or other printer
manufactured by Apple, it can be connected to your Macintosh in the
standard way. Go now to “Installing Software for Your Printer.”
■
Other printers. Other printers require special attention. Apple does
not recommend using these printers, but if you do, take into account
the following three points: (1) you can only use the printer when
you’re in the Apple IIe environment; (2) you must have a special
cable made so you can plug the printer into either the modem port
or the serial port on the back of your Macintosh; and (3) to use the
printer in the Apple IIe environment, you may have to print through
one of the Serial Cards instead of the Printer Card.
This appendix pertains only to printers designed for use with the
Macintosh, so if the only printer you’re connecting is an Apple IIe
printer manufactured by a company other than Apple, you should
skip the rest of this appendix.
Appendix E: Installing Printer Software for the IIe Startup Disk
157
Installing the
software for
your printer
To install the software for your printer, you must first make room on the
IIe Startup Disk and then follow the software installation instructions
that came with your printer, as described in these steps:
Before you begin: Turn your Macintosh LC off.
1. Insert the IIe Startup Disk.
2. Turn on your Macintosh.
3. Open the IIe Startup Disk by double-clicking its icon.
4. Open the System Folder by double-clicking its icon.
You may have to use the scroll bars to see the System Folder.
5. Drag the following four icons to the Trash.
These icons represent the software for several printers. By throwing
them away, you’ll make room for your printer software.
If you have a LaserWriter or an ImageWriter connected to your
Macintosh, you can leave the appropriate icon or icons on the disk.
158
Appendix E: Installing Printer Software for the IIe Startup Disk
6. If you have an Apple StyleWriter, see the section that follows,
“Special Instructions for the StyleWriter.” Otherwise, see the
instructions that came with your printer to install the
software.
Some manuals might call this “installing the print driver.” Usually it
involves dragging one or two icons from the disk supplied with the
printer into the System Folder. Many Apple printers use the Installer
program to do the copying.
s
▲ Important: Remember, you are installing the software on the IIe Startup
s
Disk, not on your hard disk (if you have one). ▲
7. When you’re finished, select the printer in the Chooser, as
described in “Setting Up the Printer Software” in Chapter 2.
Special instructions
for the StyleWriter
The installation method described in the owner’s manual for the
StyleWriter requires more disk space than is available on the IIe Startup
Disk. Follow these instructions to prepare the IIe Startup Disk for
printing on a StyleWriter.
Before you begin: Make sure you’ve thrown away the appropriate files,
as described in the previous section, “Installing the Software for Your
Printer.”
1. Find the disks that came with your StyleWriter printer.
continues
Appendix E: Installing Printer Software for the IIe Startup Disk
>
159
2. Find the StyleWriter printer file on the StyleWriter disks.
The StyleWriter printer file icon looks like this:
3. Eject the StyleWriter disk by choosing the Eject command
from the File menu. (If you have System 7, the Eject command
is in the Special menu.)
The disk is ejected and its icon and windows are dimmed.
4. Insert your copy of the IIe Startup Disk.
5. Open the IIe Startup Disk by double-clicking its icon.
6. Arrange the windows so you can see both the System Folder
icon on the IIe Startup Disk and the StyleWriter printer
file icon.
7. Drag the StyleWriter icon into the System Folder icon and
insert disks as requested.
8. Choose Restart from the Special menu.
9. When you’re finished, select the printer in the Chooser, as
described in “Setting Up the Printer Software” in Chapter 2.

included in Apple’s Media Exchange Program. While not an upgrade or update method, this program offers additional
protection for two years or more from the date of your original purchase. See your authorized Apple dealer for program
coverage and details. In some countries the replacement period may be different; check with your authorized Apple dealer.
