The following are Palapeli's menu actions, some of which are also available as toolbar buttons and shortcut keys.
- → (Ctrl+N)
Opens a dialog which allows you to create a puzzle from an image on your disk. See the corresponding section for details and also special concerns, if you are going to create a puzzle with 300 or more pieces.
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.
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.
Any puzzles that you have selected in the puzzle list, will be permanently deleted from your collection.
This action cannot be undone.
