Make sure both computers have the fonts you want to use.  Good luck.

Assuming you are talking about VW files - we use both Macs and PCs in our office, and share all files through a server.  You can also exchange files from one machine to another if you don't use a server, but VW runs the files as well on each machine.  We also use Project Sharing in a multiplatform environment - one thing to note is you must set up file sharing using SMB, not AFP, as PCs cannot read AFP file protocol.

I had in the past problems with the paths used by the Callout and heavily with encoding (special EU chars). This last should be resolved with VW 2018.
