What works

Most core wordprocessor functionality including the embedding of images, drawings and auto-update (eg. date) fields.

What does not

Documents with spaces in the name do not appear to be parsed correctly by the "Open File" dialog but [strangely] work from the recent documents list. OLE embedded objects do not appear/open (eg. charts from another app). Custom cursors do not appear ("No support for .ani cursors"). Starting application in non-maximised window state - main application window does not appear, though the "WORDPRO.EXE" process is listed in 'top'.


What was not tested

Probably lots of esoteric wordpro functionality I am not even aware of.

Additional Comments

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

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/
