CrossOver and inability to resize

At work I am running an Ubuntu laptop.  I'm required to run Microsoft Office (as opposed to say, LibreOffice) and Outlook.  While I could manage the Wine config myself, I have found CrossOver to do a pretty good job.

One of the things that always annoyed me was that many times, with Microsoft Office apps, I would no longer be able to adjust the size/position. I had fixed it in the past by going into regedit.  This solution seems much easier:

From here:
  1. Open Crossover Manage Bottles.
  2. Select your Office bottle from the list on the left.
  3. Click the Control Panels tab. Open Wine Config.
  4. Under the Graphics tab uncheck Control & Decorate checkboxes.
