What strategies do people use when the Pic-A-Pix is larger than the computer screen? The scrolling, especially left and right, to see what colors are remaining is kind of frustrating. I know you can click the "Compact Mode" button, but I haven't found that very helpful.

Thanks for ideas!

I find the mega Pic a Pix puzzles more hassle than they are worth, which is unfortunate because I really enjoy the larger puzzles.

I wish they would provide a way to lock the numbers at the top and left of the screen, and just scroll the puzzle grid, much like you can lock header columns and rows in a spreadsheet. This would make these puzzles so much easier to work.

Yes, exactly. That would work much better.

I've transposed some of the puzzles into excel so I could do just that.

How do you do that? Can you walk us through the steps?

Thanks!

I found an old one I did. Attached is a screenshot since xlsx isn't supported in attachments. I believe it's the example Mega Pic a Pix from the site.
