    I know I must be the last person on earth to still use AppleWorks :cool: but I've gotten used to it and I'd rather not use Office. Anyway, an annoying problem is that the "Open Recent" submenu under the File menu keeps a copy of every document I've opened, rather than the most recent; it sets a limit (20 or so) on the number of files, however, with the net effect that I only see files that start with A through D (the top files alphabetically). Any way to fix this?

    In Appleworks preferences, under Topic: Files, what's entered in the "Remember the ___ opened documents" field?

    It doesn't matter what I put in that preferences panel - I've tried putting 10, 40, etc. If I put 10, there are only files that begin with the letter A. :mad: I've even tried emptying the folder that contains aliases for the recently used files; somehow, it seems to remember them and put them back.

    Ugh. Any clues?
