The solution says I'm wrong but I cannot see where! Is there any way of adding a screenshot to this message?

...so the problem of how to provide a screenshot has more than one unique solution...

Let me guess where you are wrong: in column 4 and 5 (labeled 3 and 2) you toggled the numbers 3 and 2, so the clue 3 at the bottom of column 5 is not matched. That's what I would miss I think.

I have no idea what's wrong - maybe lockdown madness has finally overtaken me! I've email Gareth hopefully his brain hasn't gone to mush like mine.

Mine too ziggymole. I've been making really stupid mistakes, though not on skyscrapers which I just can't do at all

I've looked at the pics you sent. It's just that 'give up' shows what you entered in green, and the puzzle solution in large digits in the middle. So the large, red numbers were not your solution, but the solution. So that's why the actual solution matches the actual solution shown the day before. But it doesn't match what you entered - shown in green - which is wrong as I've explained by email.

But I must admit it confused me for a minute too! Using green for 'what you entered' on the give-up screen was probably a bad choice.

Gareth, it took me a while to understand what you wrote, because I never used the 'give up' option.

So when ziggymole was looking for "his" mistake, he was looking for it in the correct solution?

Yes - and me too, to be fair, when I first reviewed the picture!!! :)
