Vector works Mini-cad, ver 8.5.1

Question

I just replaced my drive on an old MAC G-4 and had to reinstall from the discs. I lost any updates that I was able to download many years ago. 1. I would like to update as far as I can on this version, 2. with the reinstall, I lost all of my settings and do not remember where to go to 'increase the portion size' that comes up during some operations. I have a G-4 ruining Mac OS 9.2.1 with built in memory of 1.5 GB. Does anyone know of where I can find the info that I need? 

Thanks in advance. I'm retired and don't need to spend a lot of money to dabble with a fun program that I have created many symbols over the years.

Thanks, I'll download this and see. Can you help with finding where to increase the partition size?

The Disk Utility app

The Disk Utility app

That would be for portioning the drive. I vaguely remember having to allocate memory size, by selecting the program and changing the size there, not in disk utility. Also, after downloading both the hqx and bin files, I can't open them on my new system because it says it can't find the application that created it. I get the same message on my old G-4 when I try and open it there. What am I missing? Thanks for any additional help or directions to find some of the answers to this 'relic' of a computer I am using. I would love to see how fast my work won be on a new system, but I'm very happy with the one I have.....
