Uses all of your words

Whether you have one word or more than an hundred, this puzzle maker will put all of them into your puzzle. "Didn't fit" is not in its vocabulary. As you add more words, the boxes and font will get smaller to make them fit. So it is up to you how much you want to put into one puzzle. 

Use any alphabet, any symbol

You can use letters with diacritical marks, other alphabets, or even symbols. The software supports any Unicode symbol in the answers and clues. Even if your keyboard can't type these characters directly, you can still copy/paste them into the software.

Provide hints

One click gives your students a word bank (list of answers to choose from). You can choose from 6 preconfigured formats, or modify any of them, or type whatever else you want.

Customize answers

Multi-word answers are usually run together as if they were one word. This is traditional for crossword puzzles. But this might not work for education, so you can choose to show word breaks with a heavy bar or even spaces. Answer letters can be traditional all capitals, all lowercase, or however you typed them in.
