Software / Technical / Crossword Compiler Tech question
« Last post by wbg on July 15, 2014, 03:16:03 PM »
Is there a good source of info on operating this program?  I've got a couple questions at the moment:

1.  Is there a way to pull clues from the database for all answers in the grid in one step?

2.  Can one turn off screen updates during autofill as a means of (maybe) speeding up performance?

Thanks.

Are you sending yourself the puzzle in .PUZ format (i.e., suitable for AcrossLite)? And do you have a version of AcrossLite for the ipad air?

Here's a recent LATimes puzzle in puz format to try.

Some time ago I did a rewrite for Stan Newman and never heard back. Surprised me because he had approved the theme and the grid. I sent it more than once and then mailed it. It's been a very long time. Any suggestions?

The LATimes finally resurfaces, but today (Friday, 7/11) five of the six links to puzzles are broken.

But I'm likely talking to the wind ...
