Selected Test Results

What works

Majority of core word processing functionality including the embedding of images, drawings and auto-update (eg. date, page numbering) fields.

What does not

OLE embedded charts (sends wordpro into infinite loop),


What was not tested

Have not tested installing in 1.2 (1.2 installed over top of 1.0). OLE embedded charts where the source application is installed. Probably lots of esoteric wordpro functionality I am not even aware of.

Hardware tested

  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Main formatting toolbar is still quite sluggish compared to native environment which makes using this app a bit painful, but you can live with it IMO.

HowTo / Notes

Do not set wordpro to start in any other window state other than "maximised" (eg. by unchecking "Load Wordpro Maximised" setting accessed via File -> User Setup -> Wordpro Preferences). If you do this, Wordpro will start but it's main window will not appear, leaving you unable to interact with the application (it does not even appear on WM task lists). The process must be killed. To recover from this situation, use the command line: wine start /max 'C:\lotus\wordpro\wordpro.exe' Then remember to recheck the "Load Wordpro Maximised" option so you don't have to do this again ;-)
Fix unordered bullets by copying Wingdings font

To make the unordered bullets work correctly, you need to download and copy the `wingdings.ttf` fonts into the "c:\windows\fonts" directory:

1. Download `wingdings.ttf` TrueType font

2. If wine is installed in `$HOME/.wine`directory, run command:

   $ mkdir $HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/
   $ cp wingdings.ttf $HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/
