Press i on your keyboard to toggle all interface elements and admire the magic squares without distraction.
Note: you can share any setup in "zen mode" by pressing the share button at the bottom left and then adding the following extra url parameters: &interface=hidden to the end of your url before sharing it with your friends.
Animations can be paused by pressing o on your keyboard, or using the pause button in the interface. This is useful for taking beautiful stillshots and printing.
Double click with your mouse on any magic square to see a full screen version of it (and double click to come out of it too).
Press p on your keyboard to toggle print preview mode. You can then trigger the print dialog by pressing ctrl p or right clicking anywhere within the screen and choosing Print....
Please note that printing uses your colour settings, so for a light printer-friendly version change to day-mode or adjust the colour settings manually before entering print preview.
