Find-A-Word Wizard V4

Problem: Windows Version Only - Printing


When I try print a puzzle the output is of poor quality. Wordlists have the first letter missing and the border overlaps the puzzle.


Solution: Check that the version you are using is V4.0.1 or above. If it isn't, download the free upgrade. Also make sure that the 4 margins are set to zero (0) when the Page Setup appears.

Problem: I can't change the puzzle from Uppercase to Lowercase


Solution: A bug was intoduced in V4.0.1 and has now been fixed


Download the Free upgrade to Version 4.0.2 or above


Problem: When I edit/create a wordlist using the built-in wordlist creator, the first word is deleted when I click the Apply button.


Solution: Download the Free upgrade to Version 4.0.3 or above


Problem: I am having trouble Networking Version 4 on Windows, every user has to enter the registration code. Is there a simpler way?

Solution: Putting the fwwprefs file which is created when you register into the users profile works and saves every user having to register. For example with XP the path might be

Server - \\Servername\Profiles\username\Application Data OR
Locally - C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data
