I've been staring at this one for hours.
I've gotten stuck on these before, but eventually I find the key. This one I am about to throw in the towel.
Anyone have any tips?

Update. I WORKED IT OUT. And learned some new solving techniques in the process.

Best puzzle ever. Thank you Conceptis!

I'm stuck at nearly the same place you were. Care to share your technique?

I think one of the breakthroughs was in column 12

In order to have 7 squares filled across 6 groups, you must have (1x2) and (5x1).

In some neighboring columns, there are similar requirements to have at least a certain number of (1)... meaning shapes adjacent to the (1) cannot be colored in!
