  1. Hi Tom it would be nice if you could increase the size of the grids a bit while you collate them and put them in the form of a GoogleDoc.I find it really hard to make note of numbers as the cell size that i get after print in googledocs is very tiny.

  2. Unfortunately there's no way I can increase the size of the PDF without doubling the page count - which is something I don't hugely want to do because the whole idea of the PDF was fitting everything onto one (double-sided) page.

    I don't know whether there are some work arounds or not. In theory, everything is done with vector graphics so any decent PDF viewer should be able to zoom to a larger size and print off part of the page at a larger scale. I haven't tried this! I guess this is something of a trade-off. With some of the harder puzzles being able to make notes is something that I'd definitely want to be able to do.

    In the mean I'd suggest either printing off particular puzzles right from the source of the author's blog, or else zooming in on the PDF and taking screen captures and printing those. (unfortunately using vector graphics means you can't directly copy and paste the images from the PDF - but this is a very low priority if the idea is to simply print the pdf without any further faffing). I suppose before making any drastic changes to the format I'd be wanting to hear a wider spectrum of opinion as to whether people consistently need to - but can't - write pencilmarks in the puzzles...

  3. Thnks for the reply !! yeah it would be nice to have more opinion before changing the format.But i would not mind if you double the page count which gives more room for the sudokus and the cells would be bigger.In fact by that way i wont be losing papers as i am currently taking printouts as you suggested directly from the authors blog so that i can make pencil marks.
