Word processing component of Office 2016.
Creating blank documents, inserting pictures from the clipboard, drawing shapes.
What does not
The program tends to crash quite often, such as when attempting to open or save a document, create a document from a template or even when closing Word.
Some of the available text effects aren't rendered properly, appearing as a mess of colored lines.
The Configuring dialog box tends to show up once a document has been created.
What was not tested
Most features, due to the crashing.
The Staging branch was used. Requires a DLL override for "riched20.dll", select "Native (Windows)" (bug 14980) 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. Two files in the /opt/wine-staging/lib/wine folder, ucrtbase.dll.so and api-ms-win-crt-locale-l1-1-0.dll.so, were replaced with ones directly compiled from the Wine source code to prevent the program crashing on startup.
