Formatting Crossword Compiler output for NYT
« on: March 08, 2020, 01:24:18 PM »
I'm losing my mind - a few months ago I found a website that had step by step instructions for exactly how to export a puzzle made on Crossword Compiler to print for NYT submission. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or where this page is? Seriously going crazy here trying to find it. No idea how I stumbled across it the first time.

Thanks in advance!

It's under the FILE/PRINT menu. Your name/address/email information needs to be in the puzzle header, You can add this to your default template so you don't have to enter it every time.

On the print page select the options:

Headers, On each page, Puzzle, Solution, Numbered Solution, Print on Separate page, Clues, Clues with answers, Option/separate pages

You can preview to make sure it's all there.

Once you've set it up, you can click save options, so it will be there next time.

This actually puts more information on the pages than they require, but it works.
