At the moment I can't figure out how to show individual pieces as I think you wish, Fergus. I copied the URL for a Black Rocket (I used the Rocket symbol [from the set Abstract Pieces: All] to represent a Balloon in my variant). I did so from the Diagram Designer, as the instructions on it seemed to indicate I should do, but as you may notice, only the text of the URL shows up on my submission (I don't know how to highlight a URL in blue, but I would think that would not suffice for you either). Cutting and pasting the image for a Black Rocket, as I tried earlier, showed nothing in the text at all. Saving the picture as BRocket.gif as a file and then typing BRocket.gif only showed those very words as text, too.

If I can't ever get how to do it, would listing the squares that pieces are on, under the Diagram Designer diagram, be okay instead? Others have done that with 4D variant submissions in the past, I've noticed.
