Pencil Marks What is a pencil mark? Pencil marks can help you keep track of your own thinking, simply enter more than one digit/letter into each square, just like you might do if you were using pen and paper. The size of the digits/letters is smaller when there is more than one digit/letter in a square. A square might contain more pencil mark digits/letters than can be shown.
Keyboard Usage Note: only when supported by your computer/device/browser/etc. X is treated as a blank square. P = auto-pencil marks (updates A, B and C only). CTRL + arrows = move around the grid. SHIFT + 1 = highlight all squares containing A. SHIFT + 2 = highlight all squares containing B. SHIFT + 3 = highlight all squares containing C. SHIFT + 0 = clear highlighted squares.
Mouse Usage "Show squares with a pencil mark..." highlights all squares with that number as a pencil mark.
Checking If you click 'Check' the system will check for incorrect squares. If 'Show mistakes when checking' is checked they will be marked in red. The system only checks squares that contain one large A, B C, or X, and ignores all others. If 'Highlight clues' is checked any clue where A, B or C appears first in the row/column will be highlighted - this does not mean that your answer is correct.
Uniqueness Each puzzle has exactly one solution, which can be found using logic alone and no guesses are ever required. If you think you've found another solution, then please double check the rules.
