How to solve SlideWord puzzles
Hover and type.
Just hover the mouse over a word to see the definition, and start typing. Some words may be given to you and some may be blank.
Words go in all four directions.
Slide words into X area.
Slide words into the "X" area by dragging the blue arrows. Letters in the vertical words will cross letters in the horizontal words.
If the puzzle is set up as a slideword puzzle, it may have some words pre-placed. If it is set up as a traditional crossword, then all the words will be in place and you don't need to slide them.
Look for anagrams.
Anagrams - words with the letters shuffled - give you the starting clue where words go. In this example, "TUFER" is a partial anagram of "REFUTE".
The shape of each letter tells you what direction it reads. Adjacent letters must fit together like jigsaw puzzle pieces.
The X reveals two diagonal words.
The diagonals make the letters green, and reveals the puzzle's "punch line". This one is "Fat cat".
Type in upper or lower case.
Use uppercase when you are sure, lowercase when you are tentative. Press Enter to switch to upper.
Keyboard arrows can move within a selected word. Or just move the mouse.
