MacDraw II on a Swiss German version of System 7.1

MacDraw was a vector-based drawing program much in the style of MacPaint and MacWrite on the early Macintosh computers. While MacPaint worked with bitmapped images, MacDraw would work on drawing objects that could be placed independently of each other.

Vector graphics applications were less popular than paint programs as they had a more challenging learning curve than the simple concept of manipulating pixels.

MacDraw eventually evolved into MacDraw II and MacDraw Pro, and ultimately ClarisDraw.

Though ClarisDraw has been discontinued, EazyDraw and Intaglio can open MacDraw files with native Intel support.
