    Word 2007 Bullets issue

    Hi,

    I have successfully installed Office 2007 using this guide: http://www.wine-reviews.net/wine-rev...wine-1132.html

    I am running Lucid and the PPA branch of Wine, now at 1.1.44-0ubuntu1~lucidppa1

    Everything appeared to be working fine, then I noticed that in one particular document I am using tick marks for my bullet points but they are not being displayed correctly. Then I noticed that a lot of the bullet point styles are not displayed properly. Usually the bullets are replaced by a square or garbage.

    I have copied over the symbol.ttf font from my Windows 7 machine but it made no difference

    Can anyone help?

    Cheers

    Anyway, megamaced, do you have that problem if you use a native linux application? Just trying to figure out if it's a problem with the font you're using or WINE, or what. You may be using some font WINE doesn't know, did you try installing ttf-mscorefonts-installer or even just changing the font in your documents?
    If the only reason you think your software is better is because it's FOSS, you need to write better software

    I did run, or at least I thought I had run, the MS fonts installer in Wine using Winetricks. Either way, I copied over Webding.ttf, wingding.ttf, wingdng2.ttf and wingdng3.ttf from my Windows 7 with Office 2007 installed, and now my tick bullets display OK.

    W00t!

    I think LibreOffice is better than Abiword in my opinion
