Creating Your Own Project
We will begin by creating a new document in Microsoft Excel. We are going to enter some words for geometrical shapes into the cells of our spreadsheet — one letter in each cell. We'll learn how to format the text in the cells and how to add a border and gridlines. We'll learn how to add a comment that will act as a pop-up clue when someone hovers their cursor over a square that will be used for the first letter of a word. We'll also learn how to add "conditional" formatting to the first-letter cells to indicate whether the letter entered is right or wrong. We'll save the puzzle as a template and learn how to print it out, in case someone wants to complete the puzzle on paper, rather than on the computer.
