When you launch Palapeli for the first time, your puzzle collection is preloaded with some default puzzles that come with Palapeli. Click on one of the puzzles to immediately start playing. Playing takes place on the puzzle table; see the section after next for how to use the puzzle table.
Apart from selecting a puzzle, the puzzle collection can be used 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.
You can select puzzles in the puzzle list by pressing Ctrl and mouse button together. Pressing the mouse button or mouse button without Ctrl opens the specific puzzle in the puzzle table.
- Create new puzzle
Opens a dialog which allows you to create a puzzle from an image on your disk. See the next section for details.
Any puzzles that you have selected in the puzzle list, will be permanently deleted from your library.
This action cannot be undone.
- Import from file
When you have received a Palapeli puzzle file (which can usually be recognized by the file extension
*.puzzle), you can use this action to import it into your local collection. Puzzle files can also be played by simply clicking on them in the file manager of your choice, but after the import, the puzzle will appear in your local collection, and you can safely delete the downloaded puzzle file.
- Export to file
This will export the currently selected puzzles to files, in order to enable you to give them to your friends, publish them on the web, or make backup copies of your collection.
