Teddy released

I am releasing a new visual interface to Popeye. It is called Teddy and was presented in a beta-version in a lecture at Ostróda. It is available for download at
It has user interface in four languages: German, English, French and Danish. Popeye interface in German, English and French. Language may be changed on the fly.
Pieces may be drawn onto the board and Popeye input is generated at the same time. Twins may be generated the same way. Popeye may be called pressing a button and the result is seen immediately when Popeye is done. It can maintain a collection of problems, everything may be saved to a .tdy-file at any time or when closing Teddy. It can generate diagrams (in colors too) and backup is automatically taken at specified intervals. There is more information on the web-site and on the help screens.

Is it possible to store the solution next or attached to the problem? I could not find a simple and intuitive way to do that.
Thank you very much for help!

PS: Please also note the Danish tooltip when hovering the menu item "Help" (cosmetic bug).

To store the solution was not part of my plans, but of course this request could be implemented. I have to think about how to make it fit into the design. In version 1.0.0 there is no solution for this. To copy the solution into the comments field will not work as multiple lines in that field will be rejected by Popeye.
The tooltip for the help menu should not be there at all. None of the other menus have tooltips.

Nice program!
A solution module is indeed missing. I assume it can be implemented in the space used for the solving text - as a tab.

Looks nice, but still can not unerstand how to include fairy pieces... Yes, they can be rotated, but after that nothing happen...
In the Help menue is writen that the piece with ? should be used and there will be open two squares for input choice, but I don't see them.
Some help? For Example how to put 180 Rorated Rook as a Rook-Lion, or how to put board on the square with Grasshopper to make it HurdleColourChanging Grasshopper (Andernach Grasshopper)?

Fairy pieces have to be DEFINED by dragging a rotated piece or a piece with ? over to the fairy piece to the right of the other pieces. Then the two windows will open to allow you to define it. After that the defined fairy piece may be dragged onto the board like any other piece.

Thanks Bjorn! It works now. But please check the "hurdlecolourchanging" piece. Looks doesn't work - in Teddy is hurdlecolorchanging instead of hurdlecoloUrchanging.

You are right. A small change for the next release. Until then you must add the U yourself.

But please use the link again if you downloaded "by hand". I used the opportunity to correct a couple of details, not knowing that the first 1.3.0 was already in play
