Basic features like text boxes, WordArt, lines, arrows, shapes, images and graphs work fine. Printing also work. User interface is generally stable and usable. Presentation mode also work but may have some issues.
What does not
Network folders when loading/saving files (program freezes). Open a file by drag and drop also freeze; however you can drag and drop pictures to an open document and it is added successfully.
On KDE Plasma 5.10.5, window moving/resizing doesn't work well, but this is no problem if the main window is always maximized.
What was not tested
Only things on "what works" and "what doesn't works" was tested
A clean 32bit-only wine prefix configured to emulate Windows XP. You need to substitute "riched20" library in order to get PowerPoint working. Open a terminal and type: env WINEPREFIX="path_to_your_wine_prefix" winecfgGo to "Libraries" tab, write "riched20" and press "Add" button. Press "Edit" button and select "native, builtin" option, and then "OK". Press "OK" again on winecfg dialog.To achieve a successful install (for this program and MS Office 2010 in general), you need to install MSXML6 and .Net Framework 2.0, preferably on a clean 32bit-only wine prefix. You can use winetricks:env WINEPREFIX="path_to_your_wine_prefix" winetricks dotnet20 msxml6
