Okay, I couldn't get the June 4 LAT puzzle from the archive page, so I came here.  I'm sorry, I haven't done this before.  How do I 'save to an ANSI text file'?  I tried saving to a text file with a '.ANSI' extension, but that didn't work.  What should I do?

Thanks,
David

An ANSI text file is just a fancy name for a generic text file with a .txt extension

Thanks!  It's weird, though–it works with the puzzle as a '.txt' file, but if I change it to '.puz', then it says it's corrupted and won't load it.  And when I tried to save as '.puz', it saved as '.txt'!.

Yeah.  I'm just saying that to distinguish from a Unicode text file.  It's in the way the characters are saved.  It may handle Unicode though, but I haven't tried it.

The general process is you copy what I have in the post out to a text file in Notepad and then save it (say as lat180604.txt).  Then you load that file up in Across Lite, where you can save as a PUZ file.
