I am updating my (Excel2007) solver to make it more inputfriendly as I'm beginning to get RSI. It was very easy to let it remember the last operator. In plusonly or multiplyonly puzzles, I have to type the operator only once! Now I am looking for a handy method to code the cages in a simple and fast way to reduce key strokes. A cage of 3 cells used 8 keystrokes, now only 2. I found out, that it is easy for a macro to determine how a cell is left. That is, a+[enter] can be distinguished from a+[arrow left]. That kind of information can be used! And this opens the way for a kind of 'steno' to specify the form of a multi cell cage! So far I have made 42 functions. For example v+[enter] is a square, v+Arrow is a parallelogram in that direction. So 5 functions underneath a letter. c is for correction, a is add cell to cage in that direction. It works fine. I have to type 70% less!
