Hi,

when I find a solution to a puzzle, I often want to go back and figure out why that's the only solution. Currently that means solving, and then starting the puzzle over. What I'd love to be able to do is to go back to the player from the "Solved" popup. Then I could e.g. click "Reset To Fixed" and take it from there.

User-interface wise it seems like something that could work nicely (a "Back To Puzzle" button or even just a "close this popup" X in the corner). No idea whether it's technically easy, or you think it's a good idea or worth the work -- feel free to say no / ignore (obviously).

Thanks!

This is only loosely related to your request, but just in case you didn't know: Except for the puzzles of the current week, all puzzles in the archives have a link to (an image of) their solution.

Save the puzzle before you submit it. Then you can load it back up after you submit the solution.

That brings up a different request.

Can there be an option for 'Save' to not exit the puzzle screen? (Also would be nice if it was a no overhead option - so you can click 'Save' and 'Done' as fast as you can move the mouse...)
