Crossdown Cluebank is a database for storing crossword puzzle clues. It is fully integrated with Crossdown, enabling you to bring up a list of clues to choose from for each grid entry, or "automatically" clue the entire puzzle with one click of the mouse. With Crossdown you can print crosswords in a variety of styles, and export puzzles in several popular graphic file formats for use with all word processors and desktop publishing software. You can deploy fully interactive crosswords to websites. You can generate puzzles as Adobe PDF files for distribution among other computer platforms, including Macintosh systems. You can also generate standalone puzzle "player" game applications which can be run and solved on other Windows-based computers. Crossdown also incorporates a basic solve mode so puzzle authors can test out their own creations, or just have a little fun! Crossdown is developed by a crossword puzzle professional for other crossword puzzle professionals or serious amateurs.
