    With today's news that Lion will drop "Rosetta" functionality I am now looking for a new program that replaces Apple Works' Drawing function. Let me explain what the Drawing function does and why I need to keep it.

    Basically, the Drawing function in Apple Works allows you to make super simple layouts with pictures and text. I know can get better layout programs but what made the Drawing function special was that it was very easy to enlarge an image across two pages and print the image. This made making simple banners very easy to do.

    Is there an easy, simple app that mimics this function? Please let me know. I've clung onto Apple Works for so long because of this singular function.

    I commiserate. I searched for years for a program that would bring the functionality of the Classic OS program SuperPaint into the modern age. I've stuck it out with AppleWorks Draw module for a long time. I finally found Intaglio as a viable solution, at least purely on the Drawing side.

    Have you tried OpenOffice's (or LibreOffice's) drawing application? I haven't used either AppleWorks of OpenOffice extensively, but it seems like it would be comparable, and it's free.
