Yeah, saving wasn't the problem [really], it was the enhanced dialogs,
so it should work fine now. [i would assume by the entry appDB]. As
far as how i found the correct entry; i googled "winehq wordperfect12"
[that's what i do, when looking for info; "winehq + appname" ... the
top search results will almost always contain appDB + other useful
info like maybe some answers existing in the forum already, etc. * you
should actually google that youself as there is another main, more
complete entry for wordperfect 12 office in the appDB. + some stuff in
the forums...

I have no experience with WordPerfect, so i don't know - as far as
theming in Wine, I am not sure exactly what you are after - but it is
possible to theme wine [but not super easy]. I've done it before, but
not in some time. [ i use to have Wine match my dark GTK+ themes; so
dark menubar, menus, white-text, etc. I modified a 3rd party windows
theme that worked okay in wine, but i remember some apps not looking
perfect, as wine still feels very win 2000/xp like ].
