Advice on numbering unnumbered squares?
« on: October 07, 2017, 12:37:46 PM »
I'm constructing a somewhat tricky (think Thursday NYT) puzzle that requires a few white squares to be numbered even though no answers begin in those squares.  Is there a way to do this in either Crossword Compiler or CrossFire? 

Any advice would be appreciated!

In Crossword Compiler, you can insert a number into any square. It appears you need to do that for all succeeding numbers as inserting a number doesn't change later ones. Then you'll need to adjust the number in the Edit Clue dialog box to get it to match what you've put in the square. I've never done this, but it looks like it would work.
