Hi all, was going to log a ticket but thought to try here first.
Have been using Office 2007 for years. I could of sworn up until v11 of Crossover Linux opening .xlsx documents from KDE Dolphin file manager would yield a new Excel window for each document. Now I'm not seeing that. I'm getting them all in one window and have to use the Excel "View" menu to switch windows (tragedy).
I've followed some tricks on the web for making Excel do the right thing: Excel Options>Advanced>Show All Windows in the Taskbar (untick). There is also a trick to add "%1" at the end of the program association in windows. Looking at the complexity of the cxoffice associations, I don't know how to implement that.
I'm having the same problem.
I can not work in excel with two open windows, which is very bad..
I'm just waiting for the solution of this problem to buy this program and migrate from Windows 7 to Ubuntu.
Since I had Excel, I tried to find a solution, and I think I have a "workaround".
Now, like you, I can't open two documents and have them in two windows if I use Excel's menus. But, on my system, I can open Excel twice with my "windows applications menu", and in each instance, I can open a new document. Therefore each with their own windows, because I have two Excel windows right off the bat.
Now this isn't "perfect" but if this works on my system, wouldn't it do for you guys?

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
