Best workflow for building crossword grids?
July 3, 2012 11:55 AM Subscribe
I'm about 95% done with my first NYT-style themed crossword puzzle, currently laid out by hand on graph paper, and I want to start looking at making a digital version of it. What are some good tools or workflow for creating well laid out crossword grids on the computer?

I have Creative Suite through my job, but don't know if doing it by hand is the best way to go or if there's some better system. Most of the software I've found (I'm on a Mac) seems to for automatic puzzle generation, which I don't need or want. I just need a good system for adding black squares, letters, and numbers to a 15x15 grid. I'd also rather not pay a lot of money for software that includes features I don't really need, if possible.
