Additional Comments

Require a Windows 7 simulation (in Windows 10 simulation program will crash). Requires a DLL override for "riched20.dll", select "Native (Windows)" to prevent black font/size labels appearing. The registry value "HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\MaxVersionGL" (DWORD) must be set to "30002" (hex) to avoid a blank screen on load. After saving document, program freezes when trying to open File menu and after splash screen. After second terminating freezed program and pressing Yes in appearing window, in which written about skipping start screen, unable to open File menu even clicking View and Print button.
