SuperCard FAQ

4W Logo

Where are my resources after converting a HyperCard stack to SuperCard?

When importing a HyperCard stack, SuperEdit will present a dialog asking you where you want the resources to go.

By default, all of the "blessed" resources (types "ICON", "CURS", "clut", "XCMD", "XFCN", "snd ") go into the data fork of the project, and all the rest go into the resource fork of the SharedFile (the SuperCard equivalent of a Home Stack, a place for common resources).

The SharedFile is the default recipient because it is the only project whose resource fork is always opened and always kept open.

When you see this dialog, click "Custom..." and you will be presented with another dialog which will let you explicitly decide where each type of resource will go.
