Support from this website allows you to continue to use such software natively on newer systems

A bit about Micrografx Draw:

From the mid to late 1980s to about 1999 Micrografx Draw was a drawing program available to consumers, it was also quite popular in certain schools back in the 1990s and early 2000s enabling you to design and create stuff like boxes, greeting cards and various technical drawings could be created it actually reminds me of Microsoft Publisher and a Technical drawing program rolled in to one, posters were also quite simple to do along with quite a lot of other things. The great thing about this software is that although you could do a lot with it, its still simple to use.

One of things that I also found great about draw 6 is that its pretty good for when doing fonts that sidebar (known as the style gallery) is very helpful

Draw 6 has more pre-set shapes than the earlier versions of windows draw (draw 5 and below) and has a style gallery.



Here is a brief list of ways you can still get this software and what titles it tends to come under useful if you have lost your disk and want to buy another.

As far as I know Complete Publisher 99 has the final version of Micrografx Draw (Draw 7)

I would assume it does, Sierra Complete Publisher seems to be made in the same era. Its worth using that guide with Draw 7 too.

If you no longer have the micrografx draw installation files check out this topic (http://windowsdraw.createaforum.com/support/obtaining-micrografx-draw/) you can buy the original disc then buy the guide, which will then help you get micrografx draw working on your pc. Don't worry if it says on sale page 'does not work on 64-bit windows', because that is what my service/guide is there for, obviously to fix that problem.
