The first time an application is opened during a session, Lisa sets up a
process for both that application and all documents created by that
application. The first time you print from an application, another process
is opened. Because each process uses 200 blocks, using all seven
applications requires 1,400 blocks of disk space. Printing requires up to
another 1,400 blocks.
A five-megabyte ProFile containing both the Lisa 7/7 Office System and
MacWorks can easily become taxed for storage space. The Office System alone
takes up about 6,000 blocks (3 megabytes) and Macintosh software takes up
another 2,000 blocks (1 megabyte), leaving less than 2,000 blocks for
storing documents and all associated processes. In short, users who wish
to run both 7/7 software and MacWorks from the same disk should do so
from a 10-megabyte ProFile.
