Instructions for Picture Puzzle

  • Puzzle Goal

    Unscramble the picture.

  • Mouse Control

    Click on a puzzle piece to select it. Click on a second piece to swap it with the first piece selected.

    Selecting multiple pieces allows you to move them as a group. To select multiple pieces, hold down the shift key while clicking on pieces. The group of selected pieces may be moved by clicking (without the shift key down) on a destination location or by using the arrow keys or buttons. Note that, when selecting multiple pieces, the first piece you select is the 'control' piece. This is indicated visually; the lines in the corners of the 'control' piece are thicker than in the other pieces. When you click to move the group of pieces, the 'control' piece will move to that target location.

    To unselect all pieces, click with the right mouse button or hit the escape key or click in the 'control' piece.

  • Keyboard Control

    • Arrows shift puzzle (if zero or one pieces are selected) or selected pieces (if more than one piece is selected) up, down, left, or right. The arrow buttons can also be used.

    • ctrl-y will redo an undone move or shuffle.

    Note that after clicking one of the buttons below the picture (Save, Shuffle, or Hide/Show Grid Lines), you must click on the picture before using the keyboard controls.
