Update on Penpa-Edit

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

We just uploaded a new version of Penpa-Edit tools to the site. The major update with this version is the presence of solve histories which you can also share with others using the “share” button and then “Replay URL” choice. Here is an example link of me doing the Monday Kakuro puzzle. In Solve Path mode it will go through one entry step at a time and at uniform speed. In Live Replay mode, provided you had the clock on, it will show the exact timing of all entries and make the long thinking moments more obvious too. We’re still exploring this feature and don’t yet have an intention to have this replace our solving videos but think the ability to store and share your own solving paths will be neat.

There were also some minor fixes and other improvements that were part of this update. Please share any thought/feedback here as you begin to use the latest version of Penpa-Edit.

    I found a bug that can cause incorrect clues to appear that seems to have been caused by this update. While it pops up in many different ways, here’s one way that I found to reproduce the issue: In Sudoku mode, hold shift to get 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 into a cell. Then, hold shift and press 1. Nothing will happen until you let go of shift. Once you do let go of shift, the cell will then show 2, 3, 4, 5, and 5, which is incorrect.

    Thanks, Sudgy for reporting. There was one small typo that only affects Corner mode and caused this behavior. Funny that no one reported this on the main penpa branch as this issue exists there for a while. I have fixed it now on the main branch and notified Thomas to update it here as well at his convenience.

    Great feature, kudos to Swaroop et al.
    (Although watching these replays will probably make me even sadder than watching your videos because you guys are probably even faster in these. lol joking (ok, half-joking).
