Running the Kidspiration 1.0a OS X Updater will update your existing version of Kidspiration. To continue to also run Kidspiration in OS 9, it is recommended that you make a separate copy of the Kidspiration folder to use as the OS X version. If you did not customize the installation of Kidspiration, this folder will be located in the Applications (Mac OS 9) folder.

To complete the update, drag the Kidspiration icons to your previously installed Kidspiration folder. When finished, it is recommended that you move this folder to your Applications folder.

If you would also like to use the OS X-native version of our help system, please download the help updater.
