In the crossword game, using the keyboard only, how do you change the direction of the highlighted section? I know you can change it by double clicking the mouse, but I would like to know if it is possible to accomplish this without the use of the mouse.

Any help would be awesome!

HI Jake,

Even though the 'Crosswords Getting Started' window says this:

"Press the spacebar or right click to change the direction of the selected clue,"

it is, I'm afraid, not possible to change the direction of the highlighted section using the keyboard only. Your only options are to double-click or right-click the first square of the clue word.

Will the keyboard only functionality be re-implemented for the 2011 version of the game?

Hi badape,

Hoyle Puzzle & Board Games 2011 was released approximately May of 2010.

However, I am very sorry to have to tell you that Crosswords in Hoyle Puzzle & Board Games 2011 works exactly the same as Crosswords in Hoyle Puzzle & Boards Games 2010 - in that there is no keyboard functionality.
