Thank you so much, Richard! Can't wait to try this new version!

UPDATE: I LOVE this version!!! :dance: :bouncy: :salute:

The multi-grid printing issue is really and truly fixed, and my multi-grid puzzles have colored overlapping areas!! And with the addition of Girandola and Ninja, I'm in "hog heaven"!

One more little minor printing niggle: When printing "current grid" from a multi-grid puzzle, it numbers the grids starting with 0 instead of 1, so the numbering in the header is incorrect. (I run into this frequently when I mess up a grid badly and reprint it rather than killing an eraser.) They are numbered correctly when printing "all grids", however.

Out of curiosity, what is the status on adding user-defined extended puzzle types?

I'll take a look at this. Doesn't sound like it should be too difficult to track down.

Ah yes . . . I'd put that to the back burner. I guess I need to dust it off and put some thought into that one.

Is there any possibility of adding an export-to-image function to SudokuSolver? .PNG would be ideal, but .JPG would be ok, too.

If you are interested in just what you see on screen in a single grid, the feature is already there. If you Copy (or Ctrl-C) you will get a Bitmap image on the clipboard. If you go to a graphics package and choose Paste (or Paste As and choose Bitmap) - you'll have a BMP image of the grid.

If you want to go for a multi-grid - I tend to use an Image Printer driver and just choose to Print to that device and have it create the graphic file. This one http://code-industry.net/imageprinter.php is freeware.

Hmmm. . . I'll look into it. Thanks!

UPDATE: That works, but I wish there were a way to "print" just the puzzle itself, instead of the entire page, to an image file, so I don't have to crop it.

Hi Richard,

Is there a way to only display the puzzle grid and the controls under it and not all the stuff to the right? For example in a single 9x9 jigsaw grid, the extended stuff to the right is what I want to be able to hide (not display). Is this possible?

Thanks,
George
