I couldn't solve this logically but had to try one of two alternatives to complete the puzzle. I must have missed something!!!

It was logical for me.
If I remember it correctly:
In some cases you have two pencil marks (1 and 2) of one number left in one row that are in different areas, let's say colour 1 and colour 2. If, in a differnet row, this pencil mark is in a cell of colour 2 next to the pencil mark on colour 1, then you can delete this mark, because if it was that number, then in the row (the one I'm talking about) would not be an instance of that pencil mark left, because both are to be deleted if it was that number.

I think I had to do this a lot in this one, and at one point the pencil mark in question was pretty far away...
(and it works also with more than just 2 pencil marks for an area... that I had to use as well)

But maybe I'm wrong and I'm talking about that big today's Jigsaw, where I forgot to delete some pencil marks for a given number at the beginning and used those to exclude that number somewhere else where it would have been correct...

Thank you Joerg. I'm not sure I understand but will look out for this situation next time!:)

Have just solved the puzzle again and I think I see what you mean Joerg as I used your idea and solved logically!!!!! And in half the time:)
