What works

Everything I've used so far. My use is typical, but nothing fancy. Creating, opening, and saving documents all works fine. No problems with formulas, drop-down menus in cells, et cetera. 

What does not

Some GUI elements initially displayed with black backgrounds or borders. They still functioned, but looked ugly. This was solved with the workaround (q.v.)


To resolve the issue with black backgrounds/borders on some GUI elements, I used winecfg to add an override for the riched20 dll (winecfg Libraries tab). I had to edit the override for native, only.

What was not tested

Excel has many functions/features. My use is light, so I haven't tested many of the advanced features.
