* Copy/paste/resize the puzzles and answer keys right into your own newsletters, worksheets, books, or other publications, or print them for handouts, as PDF or as Text.
* A built-in spell-checker alerts you to any misspelled words in your word-list before you print.
* Create puzzles in upper or lower case, serif or sans-serif fonts.
* Whirlwind WordSearch checks your word list for accidentally duplicated words.
* Whirlwind WordSearch thoroughly checks the final puzzle and removes any randomly-generated duplicates of your words.
* Whirlwind WordSearch also removes randomly-generated "naughty" words, in your chosen language!
* Simply increase the difficulty slider from "Very Easy", to "Diabolically Difficult", and Whirlwind WordSearch will add many tricks into the puzzle for you. For example, if you choose an "easy" puzzle, it will only place your words across or down. It will fill the rest of the puzzle with letters that are not in your words, making it easier to find the words. If you choose a harder puzzle, it will automatically start adding your words backwards and on diagonals. It will fill the rest of the puzzle with any letters (or only letters from your word list!) And on the hardest level, it will even sprinkle pieces of your own words into other puzzle locations as visual decoys.
