We can now load information from files.
Use the Browse button to select an appropriate file from
your computer that you have prepared with one word per line.
Then use the Load Puzzle button to read in your file.
At that point you can make changes to your selections and
use the Make Puzzle button to create your puzzle.
Create a plain text file with one word per line.
If you have non-ASCII characters in your character set, save the file as UTF-8.
There are three types of files that can be read:
- Plain text files --
Create a file that contains one phrase per line. Save this as a
plain text file. No formatting, no nothing, nothing to get
confused on. Don't use any word processing
program such as Word Perfect, Microsoft Publisher, etc.
On Windows, you can use a program like Notepad.
- Microsoft Word *.doc or *.docx document --
Some people are confused about plain text files. If you create
the file with Microsoft Word or other word processor and save the
file as a DOC file, my transformation package might
be able to make sense of it. No guarentees. Go back to format
one to be sure. Again, one phrase per line.
Don't save it as a .pub, or any format other than .doc or .docx.
- Previous puzzle as HTML --
Save your final puzzle to your disk when you get one you like.
Transfer this file back and you get all of the settings
such as phrases, fonts, etc.
- No Others! --
I've had people attempt to send images, Microsoft Publisher,
and a variety of other rather interesting
formats. They won't work. If you have difficulties, go back
to typing the words into the form provided.
Note that when you use one of these choices, the phrases used are only
those from the file you selected.
