Auto-crop the grid
Vastaus

How about a auto-crop function that removes every completely blank edge-line when a puzzle is uploaded, this would give us a lot of puzzles that have those "odd" sizes, but we wouldn't have a lot of huge ones that really are just tiny... And it would be an idea to run all existing puzzles through that very cropping function. Just an idea...

Good idea, I will place it into my to do list.

Most of puzzles are n*5 by m*5 , should I crop these too ? ( 20x20 -> 19x20 )

Yes, empty lines are just annoying. Or at least I think so... *grin*

"I personally find it easier to do the puzzle when the grid is a multiple of 5; it makes counting easier.

I prefer that all puzzles be n*5 by m*5. In an ideal world, puzzles would be cropped to the smallest size and then padded to make them n*5 by m*5.

Whatever you decide to do will be okay with me, though. I recognize all the work you've put in to providing the applet and the authors put in to creating these puzzles. )

I personally hate the blank lines - especially when they are at the top of the puzzle causing more scrolling then needed for that puzzle .
To please the people who prefer 5x5 (I am not one) how about shifting the blank lines to the right and bottom. Although, this might be complicated to program. If the puzzle is drawn online - the solver could restrict the artist to leaving no blank lines.

The artists can move picture to top and left.

I also find filling empties annoing, but I rather have a full set of 5, otherwise it IS confusing. I sugest a compromise keep the n*5 by m*5, but fill in completely empty rows automaticaly. How's that? T.
