Hi,
I'm always able to solve the 'hard' 7x7 Skyscraper Puzzles, and the 'Medium' 9x9 ones.
But I've never truly (without some guessing) solved the 'hard' 8x8 puzzles.
I'm obviously lacking a skill/technique, and despite trying for a very long time I must now give up and ask for help.

Please can anyone, for example, explain to me the next significant step in solving this puzzle:



There's a 'helper' tool that automatically highlights the cells containing an '8', or '7', or etc,
but despite studying these I haven't discovered a ciritical/significant pattern?

Second row from the bottom:
If the 7th column is 7, then the 6 will be in the 5th or 6th column, with a 4 somewhere to its left. So it would have at least 5 skyscrapers from the left, violating the clue: 1/2/3 - 4/5 - 6 - 7 - 8.

hok0003,

Thank you very much.
So easy in retrospect, but I've had a blind spot for that sort of clue.
thanks again
