AppleWorks 6: The Missing Manual guides readers through both the basics and the hidden talents of the new version of AppleWorks, placing special emphasis on Version 6's enhanced word processing, Internet, and presentation features. With over 250 illustrations, a 2,000-entry index, and a menu-by-menu explanation of every command, AppleWorks 6: The Missing Manual is as smoothly put together as AppleWorks itself.
