Text attributes, coloring, automatic numbering, and patterns are available.The special reflection tool simplifies pattern definition considerably with tools for horizontal, vertical, diagonal, and crossed. A random pattern is also available. The desired pattern can be designed in black and white or color.

The final puzzles can be saved in an easily accessible library for use in a new QuarkXPress document. With the text module fill in the final solution, and with a simple command it can be eliminated offering a productive tool for end control of the final design.PuzzleMaker capitalizes on the speed and ease of use of QuarkXPress and is a very productive and timesaving XTensions module.
