Wow, you guys are all fast!

Remi, the new program allows reference stickers to all be on one face,
though it does disallow certain configurations. For example, you can’t pick
3 collinear reference stickers (since that doesn’t determine a unique puzzle
orientation). Did you mean to say "the reference stickers can’t be on one
sticker?", because that is true in the new version.

Did you guys practice with both versions last week? (I just wanted to check
because the file formats are different, so it could be a problem this
Saturday if you want to use the old program).
