This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: I'm tired of filling in the boring bits

I would like to be able to just fill the whole puzzle with blue&yellow pairs with one key stroke; then go back and flip them of change them. Also I see copy but I do not see paste; I am on a MAC.

paste is only available on certain types - labs, puzzles, projects and challenges all have slightly different bits unlocked.

the quickest way to get all the blue-yellow down is as follows
1) zoom fully out,
2) click the dash between the blue and yellow in the bottom right
3) then paint the entire molecule holding the mouse button down before releasing

incidentally while doing that you can switch the pairs around - any base under the mouse pointer will end as the yellow one from the pair.

I agree with Mike that we need to able to "fill the whole puzzle with A-U pairs with one key stroke"
This would help to reduce the repetition.

The utube video for labs was the first time I saw this speedy trick Edward lane describes. It is crucial and perhaps should be better advertised in an "advanced" tutorial.

I am not very advanced but after a few puzzles you realize you start by filling with A-U pairs and then start doing variations.
