As intersecting solutions provide letters of the unanswered clue, locating the correct word or phrase becomes quick and easy.
The lists are backed up with a comprehensive index, which also guides the puzzler to associated tables - e.g. Film Stars; try Stage and Screen Personalities.

The Solver section contains more than 100,000 potential solutions, including plurals, comparative and superlative adjectives, and inflections of verbs. The list extends to first names, place names, technical terms, compound expressions, abbreviations, and euphemisms.Grouped according to number of letters - up to fifteen - this section is easy to use and suitable for all levels of crossword puzzle. At the end a further 3,000 words are listed by category, along with an index of unusual words.
