Post The new symbols at the bottom
The symbols are self explanatory.

I have the issue that the time I saved a puzzle disappears after a certain amount of time.
I would like that information to stay on the screen, after I have saved a puzzle.

ETA: It may have occurred because I refreshed page.
I never noticed if the time saved disappeared when I refreshed the page in the past.

It may be a small "style" difference between the previous "Save for later" and the current save button.

(although I seem to remember that the "Save for later" also only showed the timestamp when "hovering" over it).

I'll see if I can make it more permanent.


edit: the icons were designed by these guys (icojam)

(except for the "a1", not an icon really).

Well, I played with them on a partially done puzzle.

(From left to right)

The Arrow is undo

The Circle clears the whole puzzle

The Eraser clears the non bold entries

The Floppy Disk saves the puzzle. The time saved will appear in a small yellow block on the botton left.

The Magnifying Glass changes the size of the cells. It rotates through the three sizes.

The a1 button toggles the ability to see the co-ordinates.

Hope that helps

YES [smile] Thank you......I just printed off your response......when I put my cursor over the symbol, nothing happened......hence "the ask".

That thing is a floppy disk?!?
Wow... I'd never seen one before [blink]
That actually made me search up "floppy disk..." [glare]

"Draw a clock" is one of the most basic components of a neurology exam. I expect that one of these years that test will have become an anachronism.

I would consider it a 3 in floppy.

We had 8 in floppys first, then 5 in floppys.

The 3 in had a hard plastic case and were not floppy. [blink]

Right now, actually as of the new day, the little yellow box with the last time the puzzle was saved is appearing over the left most buttons.

I do not like that. I liked the position that was from yesterday, off to the left side.

Since no one else mentioned this I have come to the conclusion that others
A) do not save
B) do not care where the various boxes amd buttons appear, even if they overlap.
