New Puzzle Wizard - step 3

This step allows you to set various options for your puzzle, this is the final step.

Puzzle Category

Every Jigsaw must fit into a category which best describes its subject. This category information is used when you open a Jigsaw, your puzzle collection is sorted into categories (see here for more information). Look through the existing categories in the list box to see if there is a suitable one there, if there is then select it. If, however you are unable to find a suitable category, then you can enter one below.

Puzzle description

You may optionally enter a description of your Jigsaw into this box, this will appear if the user clicks on your Jigsaw while viewing their collection.

Puzzle restrictions

Allow user to see the final puzzle preview
If this is enabled then the user will be able to see the preview window, otherwise this will be disabled. This forces the user to complete the puzzle before they can see the finished image.

Allow user to change piece sets
If this is enabled then the user will be able to change from the default piece set to a different one, if it is not enabled then the user will be forced to complete the puzzle using the default piece set which you selected in the last step.

Allow use of puzzle "Cheats"
There are some functions which might be considered cheating to use, such as being able to select all the side pieces in the puzzle as this would make the puzzle a lot easier to complete. If you do not tick this box then these functions will be disabled, forcing the user to complete the puzzle fairly.
