Additional Comments

Frustrating, this - upgraded to fedora 23 and got the latest wine, and my previously-usable SolidWorks now crashes with a page fault on startup.

Latest notes and tweaks

Latest observations:

When trying to add a note (i.e. "Note" tool on Annotations bar) to a drawing, the text style dialog box would show no font, size was -389point and -1000mm, and these couldn't be changed. When you tried to type text it would either be blank or a series of square boxes.

Running wine from a terminal threw out error richedit:fnTextSrv_OnTxInplaceActivate when the font style dialog appeared.

Copied over native riched20.dll and riched32.dll from a WinXP SP3 image, set them in winecfg to use native first, BOOM! it works fine and I can now add notes!

Hole wizard (and probably anything else wanting to use .mdb databases) didn't work, throwing a dialog with the error "Out of memory or other error trying to initialize data source from
standards file '...\HoleWizardFavorites.mdb'". Bringing up System Options to see where it is looking for the file, it says it can't open the database (but gives blank reason).

winetricks jet40 fixes this (despite complaining about not finding a .dll after installation)

Having done winetricks wsh57 in order to fix bug 34394, the terminal is spewing many many ole: and msxml: fixmes, especially if you hover the cursor over the sidebar. Doesn't appear to be causing any problems though.

Now if we could just find a fix / workaround for bug 27403 this could get a gold rating! Anyone got any further thoughts on this?
Some more observations

- Text menu and the usual new/open buttons are not drawn at startup, so you just get a blank grey bar with the solidworks logo on the left. The menus appear if you press Alt. Something to do with "fixme:toolbar:TOOLBAR_Restore send TBN_GETBUTTONINFO for each button"?

- Some of the time, after right-clicking to bring up a context menu, subsequent left-clicks seem to go *under* the menu. If you use cursor keys and enter to navigate the context menu then actions on the menu can be performed.
