I am using Sudoku free version on Nook HD+ tablet. Is there any simple way to erase all my entries so that I can retry to solve a puzzle? I know I can choose validate to find my errors but that is "cheating" in a way.

Hello. Under the "Menu" there is an option to "Reset", which will have you choose what exactly to reset (options are, digits, pencil, or both, I believe).

The "Reset" may be hiding behind "More".

My free version updated recently and since then, none of the options under the 'More' menu work at all. In the past, I used the reset option regularly, especially with the option to retain pencil entries. I even uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

Anyone else experiencing this? I'm running a trio 8 stealth g2

Also, similar to the confirm for hints, a confirm for resetting scores would be nice. I also was not aware that my online records were deleted as well. An option to clear just my local scores would be awesome!

If the options under "Menu" don't work try rotating the device. We've found that on some devices menu options only work in one orientation or the other (but not both, for some reason).

Re: Resetting scores - what exactly are you talking about here? Is it resetting the history records? If so, this does not delete online records. Only your local scores are cleared. The only way for you to "lose" your online scores would be to use a different user name, thus creating a new account, but even then the old one is still there.

Thanks for the tip on reorienting device. Although it worked in landscape previously, I will try it in portrait and see if it works. Regarding resetting high scores online, none of mine are ever high enough to make top scores and I am sure they are still there. That was my bad. However, I would have preferred to keep mine locally. Deleting them was simply a mistake on my part by brushing the reset accidentally. I am merely suggesting a confirmation option in case of accidental erasure. There are times I get "in a zone" and post some pretty decent times and like to compete against myself. It's just a thought, not an issue.

The only way to erase the local scores is to hit "Reset Scores" under Settings. That results in a confirmation prompt. Are you saying you didn't see the prompt?

That is correct, unless I hit that by mistake as well. I am away from my tablet at the moment, but I will confirm when I return to it. You guys are great in your responses. Thanks for a great game ( or version thereof). The best I have ever played, and as a Sudoku nut, I have tried many. You are doing great work!

You were correct about reset local scores having a confirm option. Oops! My bad! However, reorienting did nothing for the "more" menu. I am unable to use any of the more menu features. Not a deal breaker, but it was nice using the reset feature, but my workaround is to use # first entry and select eraser. Works good enough. Running trio mst8-21 with android 4.1. As previously stated, the more menu worked prior to last update. Info for your benefit. I have no intention of changing from your app over it!!! Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

What about the other menu options? Are you able to use the Undo/Redo/Hint/Validate/Auto-fill menu selections?

Yes, I can use all other menu items. Only all items under the "More" menu are unavailable to me. I can pull up more and the 4 items appear in a "drop-up" menu (LOL). As an avid player, I would NEVER use solve. I can access settings from the main menu (game selection, history, etc.) and I kinda know how already, so only the reset matters to me, but like I said, my workaround is fine.
