Can't open book McCad schematics with current version

Hi everyone! I'm a little late on the retrocompute scene, I bought the book but I can't open the schematics; I think something has changed in the McCad version(s) since the book was published.

Is there a PDF collection of the schematics so I can take a look?

Which book, are you referring to Tom Owad's Apple-1 Replica Creation, Back to the Garage?

Yes! I apologize, I should have been clearer.

Can you tell me what version of McCAD you're using and what file you're having trouble with? What error do you get?

"This sheet has exceeded the maximum capacity allowed while running in Lite mode. You will not be able to Save, Print or Export any information as long as this condition exists."

I took the files from the book download, then used the "Plus Converter" because it was the only way to get the schematics to open.

The version is McCad Schematics Plus Lite 5.2.6 for Windows.

The Lite version can't open the schematic. I should make PDFs. Please remind me in a week or two, if I haven't posted them.

Did you have a chance to upload a PDF version?

I didn't see it, but if I missed it I apologize.

I've updated the Supplemental

I've updated the Supplemental Software pack so it now includes both a PDF and DXF of the schematic. The bus labels are a little funny in the PDF, but otherwise, I think it looks ok. Let me know if it works for you.
