Title: CC8 Confusion
Post by: funderburgh on January 24, 2010, 10:49:23 AM
In my grid I have two squares with black lines at the bottom of the square.  CC will not reccomend fills for the down answers below these squares.  I am lost???  Can anyone help me understand whats' up here?  Any help is appreciated.

Crossword Compiler has the ability to create a certain type of cryptic puzzle which uses a black bar, rather than a black square, to indicate the end of a word.  You have just inadvertantly created two of these bars by double-clicking exactly on the line between two squares.  You can get rid of them the same way:  put your cursor directly on the black bar and double-click again.

Many's the time I've done the same thing.  :)
