Isnt there a way to write the clues but hide them? Someone tried to explain this to me once but I felt like I was trying to sort hay for a needle. This site is great. Lots of info. At the same time, there's LOTS of info. Im constantly learning with huge thanks to patient folks.
So, is there a way to make the clue then hide it?

You can do this by creating a reserved box. It is like creating a traditional box, except that you can't specify the location or some attributes that go with traditional boxes. When you are ready for your clue to go "live", change the type of the box to traditional and make the final tweaks.

This qualifies as a duh: Write the clues on Notepad and save them on your own 'puter. Once the box is actually in place, just copy-and-paste the text into the clue field on AQ.

Really, you wanna keep a copy of those clues for yourself anyway, just in case something unthinkable happens to AQ's server.

I just don't even want to think about that!
