1. Purchasing antiquated software...
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
Does anyone know where I can buy a copy of CorelDRAW v2.5 for OS/2? I know its almost as old as time itself, but it's quick, and does the job decently.

Dont get me wrong. I'm definitely up for suggestions on alternative OS/2 software - so if anyone has any better ideas, please let me know.

Primarily of late I plan on using it to draw some deck and porch blueprints.

Thanks in advance,
- Rob

There is a CorelDraw 2.0 on eBay. I will find out if it includes/has an OS/2 version in it.

There is mention of 2.0 on the above page.

This is not much but it might be of some help.

If the primary purpose you'll use the software for is blueprints for a porch, why not use a CAD rather than a draw program? BlueCad by Cadware has been released free of charge, albeit with no support. Try http://www.cadware.it or an internet search.

There is also Eagle Layout Editor and Pj2 Cad system.

Pj2 seems to be an earlier release of BlueCad or from a very similar design plan, tried BlueCad and its great for what I need, but I cant get it to print properly (trying to generate PDF's). I need to do a lot of reading in the manual and see what's up - I think the coordinate sizes one chooses for the screen and CAD drawing get directly translated to page size... so when I export or print, I get the CAD item in one corner, very small and a lot of empty page space. It's scalable when I import the exported DXF files into something else though it would be nice if I can save a step and just print from BlueCad. (though usually printing to any postscript printer crashes BlueCad even on the latest drivers - which is the other problem as I cant directly generate PDFs without the capability).

BlueCad may do the trick with a little more research on my part... some things were just a little easier on Corel still because of how it handles objects, and because I can have a filled and non-filled version of the same layout to use for printing a "pretty" wood-textured/colored one for the customer and a line-draw one for the blueprints...

Thanks for all your input.
