Is there an "I give up" option available? I can (usually) struggle through the puzzle, but would like the ability to press something like CTL-D (for Dummy) and have the puzzle solved.

your subject line sure got my immediate attention! i know i've seen an answer to your question somewhere on the forum before...but some kind and knowledgeable puzzler will give an answer soon, i'm sure!
i'm with you, though---i also wish we had that option.

I wish there was an "I give up" button, too. Unfortunately, you have to slog through it or be forever wondering what the quote was.

Or print it out and try to solve it and remember it for another time!

You may also try something. May take a little time, but will get you to solve to puzzle.

The puzzles typically list a source. If the source is an actual name, search the name followed by the word "quotes". Go through a few sites that list the quotes and compare them with the puzzle to see which fits. Again, it's a little time-consuming, but in most cases, will get the job done.

... I just can't find it in me to walk away once I started one of these puzzles...lol. I would rather get a low score and walk away satisfied that I met the challenge. I will admit that some of these cryptograms can be a real challenge but that what I like about this website!

Google cryptogram solver.
There are web sites out there where you can type in your cryptogram and it will solve it for you.
