Word processing component of Office 2007.
The application works almost flawlessly.Â The last-big-fix was removing the "oriya" fonts from my system.Â It seems that Word crashes whenever it finds the font, even though none of the documents use it.
apt-file search ttf-oriya-fonts
apt-get remove ttf-oriya fonts
apt-get remove ttf-indic-fonts-core
After this "adjustment" to the system, Word works almost flawlessly.
What does not
Macros sometimes crash or aren't found.Â Closing and re-starting Word fixes the problem.
Â Cascading menus don't always stay open long enough to select sub-menus.Â The work around is to select the sub-menu quickly.
Â Image cut and paste from the selection or clipboard is a bit quirky.Â Usually works.Â Try using "diodon" or similar clipboard manager; this helps smooth data moving between the X-clipboard and the X-selection.
Â Font management can get tricky because Ubuntu has fonts not normally installed for Windows users.Â Wine finds the "system" fonts and offers them to Word.
What was not tested
I use Word 2007 extensively and daily for my job, using styles, macros, sharing with Windows and Mac users.Â No problems sharing files during about two years of use with Wine.
