HOW TO

To enter values in the cells, you can just click and type in a natural way. A few special keyboard commands will help, though:

  • “#” – toggles filled/unfilled squares;
  • <Enter> allows you to type longer strings, which is useful for Kakuro split squares, which are entered like “5\7″, and KenKen constraints like “+5″, “/3″, “*15″ etc.
  • Shift-Arrow creates a thick bar on the appropriate border.
  • Space bar (and mouse click) change the orientation of the arrow which controls whether
    the cursor advances to the across or down.
  • Delete erases the contents of a cell

    OK – there is no documentation on how to enter puzzles on the grid yet, but basically you can just click and type in a natural way. A few special keyboard commands will help, though: “#” – toggles filled/unfilled squares; allows you to type longer strings, which is useful for Kakuro split squares, which are entered like “5\7″. Finally Shift- creates a thick bar on the appropriate border.
