When you launch Palapeli for the first time, your puzzle collection already contains some sample puzzles that come with Palapeli. Click on one of them to start playing immediately. Later, when you have created some of your own puzzles (see below), you can also click on them to start playing.
Play takes place on the puzzle table; see the section after next for how to use the puzzle table.
You can select and highlight puzzles in the puzzle list by pressing Ctrl and mouse button together. Pressing the mouse button or mouse button without Ctrl opens that puzzle for playing in the puzzle table.
On Apple OS X you need to double-click themouse button to begin playing. A single click will just select and highlight one entry in the puzzle list.
As well as playing a puzzle, you can use the puzzle collection for the following actions:
create new puzzles from images on your disk
import puzzles made by others
export puzzles to share them with your friends and the world
delete puzzles you do not need any more
The following section shows how to perform these tasks with the toolbar buttons.
