Sudoku Help - Possibilities panel

Here's a page from the extensive help system for Sudoku Dragon. It is available as a help screen when running the program. To get the full picture Download our Sudoku Dragon and see the screen in its context.

We now offer an alternative product only available for download from Microsoft Store. This shares many features but not all of them. For documentation of the SudokuDragon for Store version see its separate help section.

If you want help deciding what can go in a particular square you can click on it with the right mouse button and select Possibilities from the menu or press the F11 key. Alternatively select the Possibilities option from the Game menu or the Possibilities tab from the Details screen.

The information is displayed in a tabbed side panel under the title 'Possibilities'.

If the square is unallocated the dialog gives a full list of possibilities with a full explanation as to why the symbol may or may not be allocated to this square. It will tell you the row and column of any conflicting square allocations. In giving the explanation it will also make use of the set of forced and excluded rules for Sudoku square allocation. The current depth of analysis will determine which rules the app will use to judge possibilities. If you set an expert level then more possibilities are excluded. Impossible options are displayed with a dark red text on a different background color.
