New online tool: Cipher Explorer

In my forum posts and presentations I’ve often needed a way to mark up Zodiac’s ciphers to communicate ideas about them. Forum member Largo created an excellent Zodiac ciphers font which made it possible for me to make a web-based tool to marking up and highlighting the ciphers.

It is called Cipher Explorer and you can use it at this link:

Here is a quick tutorial video showing how to use the tool:

I hope you find the tool useful! Feel free to pass along any suggestions or problem reports. I hope to eventually integrate this tool with the nicer features from the Webtoy and CryptoScope.
