Description of Crossdown program from developer(s):
This all new Version 7 of Crossdown is a professional crossword development application,
designed for the professional and serious hobbyist to construct authentic crossword puzzles
like the kind appearing in most daily newspapers. It is not a word web generator. Generators
automatically build what resembles an unfinished Scrabble board from a pre-defined word list.
Crossdown does not do this. With Crossdown you have complete control over all aspects of
the construction process. You put together the puzzle using your own creativity, wit, and
intelligence, exactly the way the professionals work. Crossdown is a snap to use, right "out
of the box," and includes a number of tools to make crossword building lots more fun and
free of common errors. Crossdown includes Cluebank, a powerful database in which you can
store thousands of crossword clues. You can lookup these clues by searching for a word then
insert them in the Across or Down columns with a single mouse click, or even have Cluebank
automatically clue the entire puzzle for you. Crossdown includes Librarian, a tool that allows
you to organize your puzzles and quickly view them, or copy them, or search them. The Clone
tool enables you to reuse grid designs. Mailbot is a fast way to e-mail a puzzle to another
Crossdown user. The output functions of Crossdown are extremely comprehensive. You can
print puzzles in a variety of formats. You can output puzzles as PDF files, WMF files, or EPS
files. You can output puzzles to the Windows clipboard. You can deploy puzzles to websites
for interactive solving. Crossdown also comes with a lavishly illustrated, indexed Help system
explaining its many functions and how to construct crosswords. In short, Crossdown gives you
everything you need to make real crossword puzzles the right way.
Crossdown is a Shareware program.
