Black Ink 2.1.9: New York Times Improvements

October 31st, 2021

Black Ink 2.1.9 is now available on the Black Ink site and has been submitted for review to the Mac App Store.

This update addresses a bug with New York Times puzzle importing that caused today’s puzzle, October 31, 2021, to be imported wrong. If you already imported today’s puzzle you will need to delete the puzzle file from your Mac and then re-import the puzzle to get the correctly formatted puzzle.

The update also improves conversion of NYT puzzles by translating shaded puzzles to circled squares, and by improving compatibility with Across Lite.

Complete list of changes for this release:

  • Fix an issue importing October 31, 2021 NYT puzzle
  • NYT Puzzles with “shaded squares” now appear as circled squares
  • Restored compatibility of saved NYT puzzles with Across Lite
