I have two questions about gelatinbrain....
1) Where is the pyraminx? I heard that 5.3.1 is it, but it sure as heck doesn't look like one.
2) How do I type in a group of moves? So far I have had to submit them one by one.
3) How can I get a reverse move when clicking and dragging with the mouse?

5.1.2 is a Pyraminx without the trivial tips
5.1.3 is a Jing's Pyraminx

Neither are the "classic" pyraminx, but pretty close. 5.3.1 turns around edges and vertices / faces, so while it has the look of a classic pyraminx, even if you restriction yourself to only vertex/face turns, the tips can never be twisted on their own.

Separate them by commas. For a Pentultimate example (1.1.7): F'2, C2, F2, C'2, F'2, C2, F2, C'2, F'2, C2, F2, C'2 which you can also do via [F'2, C2, F2, C'2]x3.

You don't click and drag to perform a move. You click. Left-click turns something CCW and right-click turns something CW.

All of his questions have been answered but I have two of my own I've been waiting for a place to ask. Am I expected to memorize every number of every puzzle if I want to solve it or is there an index (preferrably offline version)?

Also, can the click-for-CCW be reversed? I find a CW left click to be more intuitive

Yeah there is a menu under "File" in the upper-right that has the puzzles broken down into categories. There are images for a lot of the puzzles so you can look at the image in the menu to select them. You're right though that sometimes it can be hard to find the exact puzzle.

Last time I checked the installer didn't download every image available. If you want all available images, I have a zip of them at http://www.brandonenright.net/~bmenrigh/gb_images.zip.

I suggest you get used to it. Once you do it feels very intuitive. If you can't get used to it, just swap your mouse button settings while using the program.

I suppose it wouldn't be much work for Gelatinbrain to add a check-box to inverse the mouse but any additional settings and the interface will be too cluttered.
