Installation Instructions for .zip Files

  1. Click on the download button above.
  2. When the download is complete, unpack the Chartsmith zip file and store the contents in a directory of your choosing.
  3. In the Chartsmith folder, you'll see a collection of files, including Chartsmith.app.
  4. You can now launch Chartsmith. New users should read the tutorials available in the download package, and check out the "Samples-Business.chartsmith" and "Samples-SciTech.chartsmith" documents. Happy Charting!

Installation Instructions for .dmg Files

  1. Click on the download button above.
  2. When the download is complete, your system will launch the Disk Copy application and create a volume at the root level of the Finder called "Chartsmith". Click on this volume.
    • If you do not find this volume in the Finder, your system probably did not automatically open the downloaded file. So locate the file that is titled "Chartsmith-X.Y.Z.dmg.gz" or "Chartsmith-X.Y.Z.dmg" (Where X.Y.Z correspond to the version number that you have download) and double click on this, then go back to the beginning of this step).
    • If your browser displays a lot of funny looking characters when you clicked the download button then your browser doesn't know to download this file instead of render it. Either use an alternative browser, or change the Preferences of your browser to send the data to an application like StuffIt Expander when it downloads it. Email us if you need help.
  3. In the Chartsmith volume, you'll see a collection of files, including Chartsmith.app, which is the Chartsmith application. Drag these files to an installation folder. Note that since Chartsmith provides Services, the application must be stored in the Applications folder (or a subfolder) in one of the file-system domains ( Network, Local, and User) in order that Chartsmith's Services be registered when you log in. (If you wish to store it in the /Network/Applications folder, see the InstallationAndLicensing document, which downloads with the application, for more details).
  4. Once you've dragged the Chartsmith files out of the volume, eject the volume by dragging it to the Trash. Also drag Chartsmith files that are left on your desktop, "Chartsmith-X.Y.Z.dmg.gz" or "Chartsmith-X.Y.Z.dmg", to the Trash.
  5. You can now launch Chartsmith. New users should read the tutorials available in the download package, and check out the "Samples-Business.chartsmith" and "Samples-SciTech.chartsmith" documents. Happy Charting!
