When using MS office 2007 applications I get lines going through text fields on excel spreadsheets and also when I open or save any MS Office document.

I am using crossover to run office but I'm also using ttf-mscorefonts for Adobe and Google earth.

It appears that sense I upgraded to 12.04 from 11.10 the ms fonts clash. Because if I purge ttf all is OK on MS Office but then Adobe and Google are unreadable

Any ideas?

i can answer my own question.

it appears that google earth conflicts with crossover when using MS Office 2007.

all i have to do to fix the issue is simply close out Google Earth and all is good.
