Updates & Demos

Files Size H&P Aminet
DrawStudio 2.0 Demo   FTP  
DrawStudio 2.0 (FPU) Demo   FTP  
MUI 3.6 (user files only) ~920 KB FTP AmiNet
There are Italian and Finnish translations for DrawStudio.
Fixed Bugs:

  • The current text editor setting in the preferences is not saved when you save the preferences.
  • Crashes have been reported by some users when they change screenmode.

All the patches below will upgrade drawSTUDIO from your original disks. You will therefore need the disks handy, as well as your registration number, which will need to be entered the first time you run the new patched version.

Important: The drawSTUDIO patches always patch from the version you have on your original disks, not the version you currently have installed. For example, if you bought drawSTUDIO v1.0.1 and have since patched it to v1.0.2 using a previous patch, you must choose the "v1.0.1 to v1.1.0" patch to upgrade to v1.0.1.

  • v1.0.1 to v1.1.1 -> Download the patch from v1.0.1 to v1.1.1 (445K)
  • v1.0.2 to v1.1.1 -> Download the patch from v1.0.2 to v1.1.1 (536K)
  • v1.1.0 to v1.1.1 -> Download the patch from v1.1.0 to v1.1.1 (128K)

Patches can also be found on Aminet (biz/patch)


Two versions of the demo are provided, one which will work on all Amigas with a 68020 and above and one which is accelerated for use with a Floating Point Unit (FPU). The files are about 630 KB of size.

DrawStudioInstructions For Loading / Running The Demo

  1. Click on one of the links above. Choose the FPU link only if your Amiga has a floating point co-processor; the non-FPU version will work on any 68020 or above Amiga.
  2. Most browsers will recognise the file and allow you to save the downloaded .lha file in a directory on your disk. If your browser attempts to display the .lha file, choose "Save link as..." (of some such similar command) from your browser before clicking on the link.
  3. Move the .lha file to the location on your hard disk where you want to install the program (e.g. "Work:Graphics").
  4. Open a Shell (or CLI) and "cd" to your chosen directory (e.g. "cd Work:Graphics").
  5. Type "lha x dsdem.lha" or "lha x dsdemfpu.lha" to dearchive the files.
  6. Run the program from Workbench.

DrawStudio also requires the presence of the MUI user interface, version 3.3 or above. This may be obtained, free of charge, from many FTP sites, CD-ROMs or from this Web site
