What works

Installer runs fine. The application runs fine. Can open, create, edit, print, and save a document.

What does not

The installer does not create program icons. Some dialog buttons are slightly cut off. The editor does not seem to like rendering Wine native fonts, only the ones bundled with IA work right.

The save dialog is supposed to be a custom dialog with a "Descriptive Name" field that it keeps track of. But under Wine it only gets a generic Win3.x style save dialog.


What was not tested

Did not extensively test every single option.

Additional Comments

Aside from the minor save dialog box issue, it works quite nicely under Wine.
