For screen resolution - follow the NOTES.... when you get to the settings tab,
you'll see screen area and a slider bar in the bottom right. slide it until it says 1280 X 1024, then click apply and OK
And while you've got your screen resolution adjusted, you might want to try your favorite sites to see how they look
now - you might be surprised !! If not, you can always change it back.
For text size, click on view in top toolbar and select medium.
Using any different size of text will cause the columns on the many listings to be misaligned and to show incorrect data...
Identifying the box codes
These nav bars divide all the puzzles into six general catagories. - - - - - Within each
you'll find the applicable box codes covering the category you selected.
Here is the small perfect screen... - - - - - Similiar box covers are grouped together
with notes showing the differences.
To see additional box info, click on the box cover pic... - - - - -
For an alphabetical listing of titles within a box code click on the yellow bar for that box code.
Here is an example of one of the additional info pages... - - - - -
It could show box flaps, bond stamp placement color differences - anything pertinent.
Alphabetical listings for each box code also show the box colors and an example for reference.
(see box color study for why we show box colors)
On the numbered puzzle box codes, the listings are in alphabetical order and in numerical order
(no box color is shown for numbered puzzles)
checking the box covers
This page will take a few moments to load as there are a lot of different boxes here.
(once it is all loaded, returning will reload a lot quicker)
Select the box code you want to view, noting that some of them are subdivided because of the number of boxes in
that box code
On the individual box cover pages, there is a space for each known title and a picture of each
available box cover. - - - - - Some box covers have been found in different colors within the same box code, and this is shown or noted at the bottom of the affected pages. - - - - -
Version numbers are shown after any applicable title and indicate that the title has 2 or more different pictures within the Perfect Picture family.
(read about versions in a seperate section)
pictures of completed puzzles
Puzzle pictures have been grouped into galleries of somewhat related subjects....
And since my choices of which gallery to put any particular picture in may differ from yours, making it hard to
find, I've added a list to help. This clipboard icon is at the bottom of gallery selections....
Within each gallery, the pictures are alphabetized & grouped according to horiz or vert orientation - - - - -
Versions are shown were appropriate - - - - - And artists are identified when known. - - - - - Click on a picture and a new window will open, showing a larger version of that picture.
these galleries are incomplete and currently show only a portion of the available puzzles.
The completed puzzle pictures for the Perfect Double puzzles can be viewed by going
to the appropriate box cover picture gallery and clicking on a box cover pic... the puzzle picture will open in a new window.
Note: not all puzzle pictures currently available
