Your newspaper clues may contain question marks, colons, semi-colons and titles enclosed in quotation marks. Ignore all, question marks, exclamation marks, colons or semi-colons and titles enclosed in quotation marks when entering clues in CrossKit.

Example newspaper clue: Neeson of "Schindler's List" You would enter Neeson of Schindler's List.  The more specific the clue you enter is the fewer answers will be returned.

Example: Entering the word "GALLEY" might yield the answers:

                  GALLEY IMPLEMENTS : OARS
                  GALLEY MARK : DELE
                  GALLEY NEEDS : OARS
                  GALLEY PROPELLERS : OARS
                  GALLEY TOOLS : OARS

CrossKit makes use of all Microsoft wildcards such as (*) asterisk and (?) question mark. The entry of the word GALLEY would return all words and phrases containing the word GALLEY. The entry of *GAL* return all words or phrase containing the letters GAL. However, the (*) is assumed in CrossKit and it is not necessary to enter any (*) asterisk at any time. The entry of G?L returns all words containing G(any letter)L If your clue is given in a plural, enter your search word as singular version of the word. Example: If your clue is the word SWAMPS. Enter the word SWAMP. This will improve your chances of finding all records containing the word SWAMP and records containing the word SWAMPS. Entering the word SWAMPS will return records containing only the word SWAMPS.  Remember. If you do not find an answer to your clue inquiry, experiment. Chances are that a slight variation of your entry will result in a form of what you are seeking.
