Easily Make Professional Crossword & Word Search Puzzles Faster Than You Thought Possible

Introducing Crossword Forge 6!

Crossword Forge 7 combines lightning speed and unmatched flexibility to construct eye-catching puzzles with ease. The Crossword Forge puzzle engine has been completely re-written in C++, and now takes advantage of modern computers with multiple processor cores. You will see dramatic speed improvements on any computer - from the smallest Windows netbook to the latest 12 core Mac Pros.

This exciting new version of Crossword Forge really takes you to the next level in speed, simplicity, and performance, adding new English variations and four completely new languages to Word Ideas (formerly known as Word Suggester), new settings, and Quick-look previews. Additionally, Crossword Forge 7 preserves all the high-powered features you have come to love and rely on, clearly laying claim to being the best in its field.

Fantastic New Speeds

We conducted extensive testing using a variety of puzzles. The tests were run on netbooks, laptops, desktops and workstations, on both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. Each test was repeated numerous times to ensure consistent results. What we found may surprise you! Crossword Forge 7 makes the same high quality puzzles as earlier versions, but now does so 5 to 25 times faster than before. This means you can get your work done faster. It also means that you can take full advantage of what Crossword Forge has to offer without worrying about how long it's going to take. Crossword Forge truly is as fast as a rocket.

Word Ideas When you are looking for just the right word Word Ideas is the the tool of choice. An ideal word might be a word that perfectly fits your puzzle's theme or increases your puzzle density. Now Word Ideas are no longer limited to American English.

Now for the first time, Crossword Forge 7 brings you Word Ideas in four different variations of English (American, British, Canadian, and Australian) and amazingly, also in Spanish, German, French, and Italian.

Quick Look™ Version 7 includes QuickLook integration for Mac Users. You can see a preview of your puzzle from the Mac's Finder (or anywhere QuickLook is supported) without opening the file. This feature works for individual files or a group of files; this is fantastic for quickly hunting down an old puzzle.

Prefer High Letter Count We've given you more control over the puzzle engine. You can now decide whether you want the engine to prefer longer words, as opposed to preferring words whose letter frequency count is higher (the default). In some cases (e.g. when using a puzzle mask in conjunction with cryptic crosswords a.k.a. British-style) preferring longer words can improve the chances of finding the desired solution.

Newspaper Crosswords

Now you can construct super-dense, newspaper-style puzzles with ease. If you have ever tried to make a newspaper-style crossword puzzle on graph paper, you know how challenging it can be to do by hand. Crossword setters or cruciverbalists, can combine Crossword Forge's powerful crossword engine, Mask Editor, Word Ideas, grid constraints and advanced settings to ensure puzzle making success. Crossword Forge makes it not only easier to create the puzzle, but facilitates publishing your puzzle too. Whether you intend to publish crosswords in the American-style, Japanese-style or British-style, Crossword Forge's PDF export can make the process significantly simpler.
