Can't find bottle manager

Ref Crossover for Linux 19.0.1.

The manual says Bottle Manager should be on the tools menu. It's not listed.

The manual also gives a way to run it from the command line with the command " ~/cxoffice/bin/cxsetup". This also does not work for two reasons:
The folder "cxoffice" is actually ".cxoffice".
There is no "bin" folder under .cxoffice, and therefore no "cxsetup" to run.

If found a thread from back in 2018 on this, but it had to responses to the query and was lined out.
Does lined out mean completed? deleted?

Sooooooo, where can I find the bottle manager?

View menu -> Show bottles - or simply click the bottles icon in the toolbar.

Depending on which Linux you are using and how you installed Crossover - it lives in




The folder .cxoffice is the bottles created.

Per Crossover Tech Support, the old bottle manager (which had a repair or remove function for individual programs in a bottle) no longer exists in the new versions of Crossover. So you can install programs, but you can't individually remove them from a bottle. You have to delete the entire bottle.
