What works

I am able to open files, create new files, edit them and publish them.

I did not test it extensively.

What does not

Once you maximized the window, you cannot reduce its size (even if you close the program). A workaround is to use desktop emulation: `WINEPREFIX= winecfg` then check "graphics/emulate a virtual desktop".

I also have a recent regression were custom mouse pointers are twice as big as they should.

Installation in 64-bit mode did not work for me.


What was not tested

Graphics, creation.I mainly use it to compile existing files.

Hardware tested

All these bugs and yet apparently not a single bug report.
