Additional Comments

When opening the application for the first time, when the pop-up comes up asking to open it with Protected view disabled, click on "Always open Adobe Reader with Protected View disabled" When converting PDF to Word/Excel, the window will freeze and you will have to kill Wine in order to close it. While forms work for filling out, sometimes you will click on a checkbox and it will crash. This also goes from text boxes within the form as well. Inserting accented characters (like in Spanish) will work, but when you move to another text box, the application will crash.
