I just dusted off LW 9.6 (ancient history) and have been running it on my Mac. It mostly seems to run OK, but I've had some issues with text - I can't seem to create any text.

Anyone besides me using this dinosaur on Mac OSX Sierra?

As I recall, I could never get the text tool to work right on 9.6 Mac, even when it was new, but I think it was more that I couldn't change the font than that it wouldn't type at all.

I'm surprised it's working at all. I've heard older versions of Lightwave are super-crashy after El Cap came out.

I thought I should say that LW 9.6 is now running quite well on my Mac.. ..after I bought parallels and ran the windows version on windows 7.
