Multiple issues: Resize, dialogue, navigation

Noticed 4 issues with the latest iOS version:

1. Puzzle selector keeps defaulting to highest level, not where you left off last, like "All Puzzles" list.
2. No way to get back to main full screen
3. Check Puzzle for errors, then attempt to resize smaller. You can't until you click away.
4. When selecting a new puzzle from the puzzle selector pop-up dialogue, dialogue does not dismiss. It also turns gray the first time, and yellow the second time.

iOS 11.2

    I took a look into your issues, and wanted to provide some feedback:

    1. We're looking into why this is happening sometimes. We're not seeing it happen every time the puzzle selector is brought up (are you?) but it definitely happens at times.
    2. Are you referring to when you're playing the puzzle, or viewing the puzzle selection screen? If the former, there's a left facing blue arrow in the lower left corner of the keyboard that will take you back to the full screen puzzle list.
    3. I'm not seeing this behavior; are you getting this will all puzzles, or just some?
    4. The thinking here is that when you select a puzzle, you'll be able to see it appear and view (some of) the clues. If you'd like to play it, just tap outside the popover. I am looking into why the highlight color is changing.

    Playing only in landscape mode.

    1. I am seeing this all the time, even if I force quit the app and restart.
    2. OK, I see that the only way back is from a puzzle screen using the blue arrow on the keyboard. Weird navigation, but OK.
    3. Seeing it on Joseph, Sheffer, Newsday.
    4. Fair enough, just seemed like the popover should disappear, but not the end of the world.

    1. I'm still unable to reproduce this reliably. I'm hoping the new version (in which we tweaked a few things) will help. 2. I agree, it's a little non-standard. We do show a conventional navigation bar in portrait mode, but wanted to conserve vertical space in landscape.
    3. I made a few tweaks to this behavior; I'm still not able to reproduce the problem you describe, but we are still working on it.
    4. Like the navigation issue above, we adjusted things to what felt like a better fit for Crosswords.

    Thanks again for the great feedback; we hope to have a new build out next week (ish).
