|How do I solve a Sudoku puzzle in a magazine?|
|You can use Sudoku Dragon as a convenient way to solve a puzzle, by using your normal 'manual' method or by making use of the various hints provided by the program.
First use File | New Blank puzzle... to generate a blank puzzle grid. Then go through the grid square by square copying in the Newspaper grid allocations. When you have filled in all the pre-allocated squares use File | Save... to store the Sudoku puzzle to a file. This lets you go back and solve the puzzle some other time and also tells the computer that the initial grid allocation is complete. You can now print or solve the Sudoku puzzle as normal.
NOTE: Some printed puzzles are copyright protected, you must not copy or store these puzzles without permission.
