Newbie puzzle help
« on: May 24, 2024, 08:18:55 PM »
Hi there, this may be a silly question but very new to Crossfire.

Im trying to compile a themed crossword (cryptic) for a group of people with a common interest. A lot of the answers are likely to be very specialised or words only used by the group (its a medical examination board so lots of references to textbook names etc which are unlikely to appear in a dictionary data base)

Is there a way of getting the crossfire app to use exclusively all the words I have generated clues for to start a grid, and THEN filling in any remaining gaps with other clues? In other words Id like to find a way of getting as many of my pre written clues into the grid, and then filling in after with more generic words if that makes sense?

Apologies if this is a repeated or stupid question, but would appreciate any advice.

I suggest starting with the Themed Words. Use the Lookup tab in Crossfire to find placements for your custom words in the grid. Focus on fitting these terms first,  considering factors like length and intersecting letters.
