You can move, rotate, and place pieces right on the screen! When you select a puzzle, a new window opens up. Here are some tips on how to enjoy the puzzle. If you click on "Help" under the
"Tools" button, you get information like how to manipulate the pieces, how to move them, rotate them, or how to work with multiple pieces. The "Ghost" button presents a dimmed image of what a
completed puzzle looks like, allowing you to place pieces right on it, too. If you click the "Image" button, the puzzle's image opens up in a window showing what the completed image looks like.
The number at the bottom (center) of the puzzle tells you how close (in percentages) you are to completing the puzzle. Next to that, there is a timer of your progress. You may pause the timer,
but you cannot work on the puzzle when paused.
