Find a Word with a Known Length...

Here is a One Clue Crossword example of a single word with a known length and a set of candidate letters with a few extra thrown in to make the challenge more exciting:

We’ve been given 11 letters to spell a word 7 letters long and let’s just pretend that we’ve been stumped in coming up with the final correct word. Let’s bring up WordWhisk and get ready to go…

Before we enter the candidate letters and word length, let’s check the options to make sure we're not going to ‘cheat’ too much.

First, make sure we’re only looking for words of a specific single length. Then, since it’s likely only well-known words are likely to be candidates, let’s choose to show only ‘Frequent’ and ‘Common’ candidate categories. And finally, we’ll have only the first letter shown for each candidate word.

Now let’s get back to the word finder window and enter the candidate letters ‘NMIDHLBGRAI’ and the length of ‘7’ and see what comes up.

Hmmm! 30 candidates found but only seeing the first letter just doesn’t quite give enough ‘light’. Let’s see some more letters. That’s done by tapping the ‘+’.

Notice that in the last screen only one ‘B…’ was shown under ‘Common’ but now there are 3 candidates that start with ‘B'! More clues! Let’t tap ‘+’ again...

And again...

And again...

Yes, and again...

We’ve probably figured out the correct word but, just for fun, let’s hit the ‘+’ again...

And again...

All the candidates in full! Exciting! Hmmm... Which one is it? Maybe ‘RAILING’? Give it a shot!

Solved!

And just for fun, here is the full solution to this One Clue Crossword:

We hope this will be a good help when you hit a very difficult puzzle clue!
