PuzzleMaster Lite


PuzzleMaster Lite has been designed to style and compile newspaper-type crosswords that require either a matrix or table solution. The primary concept behind PuzzleMaster Lite is to give total control to the user laying up the page or area of the page dedicated to the crossword.

By allowing the user to pre-create crossword layouts and to save them in a QuarkXPress crossword layout document or library, the user can, on the day of publication, simply copy one of the pre-prepared layouts and drop it on to the page. The user could then select a database of words and clues most applicable to their readership, click to compile a solution, and click to automatically clue it, thus producing a crossword minutes before going to press.

The PuzzleMaster solution-compilation engine also allows the user to freely edit the solution by simply selecting an alternative solution word, or even to enter a new solution word not currently in the database. These new words will then be automatically entered into the selected database for reuse in future crosswords. Additionally, the user can manually select clues for solution words and/or use the new clue wizard to create new anagram or cryptic clues. These also will be added to the selected solution word/clue database for future use. Each solution word and clue is time stamped at the time of publication thus preventing its reuse within a definable period.

Key features include:

• design and storage of reusable crosswords matrixes;

• design and storage of reusable crosswords and puzzle styles;

• solution compiler to freely edit the solution;

• simultaneous compilation of multiple crosswords and puzzles in

a QuarkXPress session over one or more documents (all the while allowing the user the freedom to use QuarkXPress in the foreground);

new clue wizard helps the user create new cryptic and anagram clues;

publication wizard produces publication tags, containing consecutive crossword numbers, publication name, date, and so on;

• time stamps for solution words and clues, thus preventing crosswords or puzzles from being generated with recently published solution words or clues;

• solution-word and clue database manager that enables the user to create a new solution with word and clue databases containing solution words and clues most applicable to the user's publishing requirements;

• time stamping of individual solution words and clues, or an entire database;

• script-driven copy/paste parser that allows the user to import solution words and clues from other applications that contain formatted text, such as CD-ROM dictionaries and the like;

• copy/paste parsing script editor that allows the user to quickly create and test scripts simply by selecting the scripting command and entering the object

• no complex command syntaxes to remember; and

• flat ASCII files solution-word and clue import/export interface that enables the import of existing sets of solution words and clues.
