Word Search Maker

A Word Search Maker is a tool for building word search puzzles more or less automatically, leaving us humans more time to focus on tweaking and polishing.
Suppose I have to produce a word search puzzle based on the theme of Christmas, for example, and I'm in a real hurry. Here's how I would go about it...



Well, that was certainly fast. Forty seconds to be precise! But I have a few issues with the result...
  • I don't like some of the words in that Christmas theme list. In fact, I have a much better list that I put together myself a couple of years ago.

  • Finding answers that go from right to left is going to be way too hard for my kids - especially on a diagonal.

  • The printed puzzle has Word Search Printer in the footer. But I want to take the credit! Even if it is stretching the truth just a little ;-)

Ok. Let's try that again...



Done!

Hmmm... I estimate that this second attempt chewed up about an extra minute of my life. I guess I can live with that ;-)

As you can see then, making a word search puzzle can be very quick and easy, provided you've got access to...
