...moving from M to M+ and now to Hard, I got stuck on this Hard PicAPix.
I tried checking a few times, looked at contradictions - nothing helped...
Am I missing a technique? or 'just' an oversight?

Help is appreciated...

Thanks,

Arik

Look at row 15, column 27. The square at 15,27 must be part of the 4. Now, the square filled in at 19,27 must be part of the 3. If that were the 1, then the 3 and 4 wouldn't fit in the remaining spaces, so it must be the 3. Since that is the 3, if we assume that is the topmost square, then count a space, then 4, you'll see that 14,27 must be filled in. This means that 14,24-27 is the 5 in that row and you can put dots in 14,9 and 14,12-22.

OK.
That did it - was able to get to the end.
Thanks again for your help, Jeff
