FreeHand running on Mac Sierra 10.12.4

Postby Handsfree » Thu Mar 28, 2019 7:50 pm

This is a bit of wish full thinking on my part but for those that still have a working G5 and running Mac os 10.5 then your in for a treat. You can leapfrog all the Mac system incompatibilities of 10.5 through to 10.12 with ease. All this is made possible thanks to Power PC refugees who have managed the impossible. Plus I get to keep all my existing software including my serious FreeHandMX (pretty much intact) so IF you have a Power PC Mac G5 in the corner - and cannot be bothered with adobe any more then this is the obvious solution. I never did like 10.5 or 10.6 but this upgrade is by far almost worth the wait.


Its for a Mac PPC 10.5 only! And this is how it looks on my machine (video below). I am happy with it and it does looks impressive! I shall keep my PPC after all with FreeHand MX installed (again). Thank goodness for FreeHand forums for a backup. No problem install. Even the font situation is OK to live with (using Linotype now instead of Extensis). But I still miss font listings in families prior to Leopard. Movie slide show of my new desktop with FreeHand MX (7Mb).

Well pleased!
