I wasn’t sure if this should be Cafe Society or IMHO so I’ll put it here and leave it in the hands of Mod.
I’m designing a really big crossword puzzle for a book festival I’m volunteering with. I’ve got the words and clues and I’ve tried several different free crossword design softwares and I’m not really happy with the results. They’ll do if I absolutely cannot find anything better, but they look like very obvious freeware; they’d be fine for a sixth grade lit quiz, but not so much for something that I want to look professional.
Anybody designed any big crosswords perhaps? And if so, what’d you use? I don’t mind paying a reasonable amount for a one time use, but I don’t want to subscribe to something that costs $50 per month when I really just want to use it once.
Thanks for any recs.
