Stuck on a puzzle 30/12/20

Postby Fortesque92 » Wed Dec 30, 2020 1:31 am

The last few puzzles from this book were solved with Naked Triples and X-Wings but it seems I am stumped on this one!

For some reason I can't see the full puzzle image. I suggest that you use some other way of displaying it. Leren

X-wing 2 r34\c34 => -2 r1c34
locked candidate 2 r1c78 => -2 r2c7
singles to the end

Leren, right clicking and "view image" normally works for these sorts of things where the scroll bar doesn't work, but it depends on your browser

Ahh a mini X-Wing, I should have been thinking smaller. Thank you!

Is there an easy way to write out the sudoku text diagrams that a lot of users on this site use?

OK I've found a way to make it work. In Chrome you click on the image, right click and pick "Open Image in a new tab". The full image then comes up in the new tab.

In your previous puzzle clicking on the image brought it all up, but it was a diagram, not a photo, so some other part of the software was at work.
