Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation and uninstallation
  • Basic editing capabilities
  • Various window effects, including everything in the "window" menu
  • HTML-Kit desktop functionality
  • All the functions of the small icons in the lower-left corner
  • Everything in the "text" toolbar
  • HTML Tidy
  • Check for updates (not the embedded web page, but the check itself does work)
  • About screen

What does not

  • Anything that tries to open a web page in an external browser. This includes the dropdown menu in the installer and most help functions.
  • Icons in the uppermost toolbar which are currently unusable are invisible/missing.
  • The splash screen while starting up is sometimes rendered behind other windows instead of in front of them.
  • The "take a tour of HTML-Kit" option when installing
  • Making HTML-Kit the default program for opening HTML files
  • The title of the active page is not bold like it is in Windows
The following won't work by default, but they can be fixed by using winetricks to install IE6:
  • Create a file in graphical/visual mode
  • Preview (only Explorer mode was tested)
  • The program's internal web browser (this is still buggy with IE6 installed)
  • The embedded web page in the available update notification
  • Preview function for the "installed plugins" feature
The following issues can be fixed by using native comctl32, which can be done with winetricks:
  • Many icons throughout the program, including all icons in the uppermost toolbar, are completely black.
  • Tabs in the upper tab bar and the tab bar for in-program windows are wider than they should be, which leads to the window tab bar being too wide for the space allocated to it; it has to be scrolled to see the entire thing.
  • The program produces an access violation and becomes unresponsive when trying to edit preferences.


What was not tested

Gecko preview, FTP functions, plugin generator, and other assorted functions not mentioned above.
