MacDraw II on a Swiss German System 7.1 computer

MacDraw was a vector-based drawing program much in the style of MacPaint and MacWrite on the early Macintosh computers. While MacPaint worked with bitmapped images, MacDraw would work on drawing objects that could be placed independently of each other.

Vector graphics applications were less popular than paint programmes as they were more difficult to manipulate pixel-wise.

MacDraw eventually evolved into MacDraw II and MacDraw Pro, and ultimately ClarisDraw.
