I already knew that one and am using it frequently.But is it also possible to change the grid colour? This would especially come in handy when doing puzzles with a lot of shades of grey. Now I have to "lighten up" every single one of them when the darkest is the same colour as the grid.Which I can of course continue doing, but one can always ask, right? 0 (0 Votes)

Yes! It's possible and it's done in very much the same way as changing the background color.

If you'll check out the pics below, you'll see examples of changing both the Grid lines(the smaller individual lines around each square) and the Grid5 lines, the darker squares placed every five gridlines.

In both cases you just click the button in the upper left corner of the solving applet. The position is marked by the name Grid or Grid5. Then just use the color window to change it as you wish.

Hope this helps!

"chefmomster2":Hope this helps!I'm terribly afraid that it doesn't. Maybe I didn't explain it very well, but I ment the colour of the grid itself. I already happily use the possibility of changing the colours of the lines, but that still doesn't solve my problems with the (dark) greys. If the shade of grey is (almost) exactly the colour of the grid, I find it impossible to see if I coloured a particular box or not. And changing one grey isn't such a big problem, but if there are more shades I have to make them ALL a lighter shade (or a completely different colour). 0 (0 Votes)

I think you are asking if there is a way to change the color of the unknown squares, since they are gray. I haven't found a way to do that specifically, but I have found a trick that sometimes helps.

Basically, instead of using the background color to mean I know it doesn't have color, I use the gray "?" squares. The unknown squares are all colored with the background color.

If you have a 3-button mouse, the middle button always turns the square back to the gray with the "?". Color the entire grid with the background color. Now you can assign two different colors to the right and left buttons. All squares that you have determined will be the background color in the finished picture, use the middle button to use the "?" square.

By the way, the puzzle shown below is #11557.
