Re: Compatibility topics

"I have not had a fault-free import yet from Everyman Chess."

Re: Compatibility topics

Sorry about the small diagram! It occurred to me that Build 112, or simply a new COW Express download, might solve all problems. I tried again. I used the Everyman Chess PGN file for David Vigorito's book Attacking Chess King's Indian Defense vol 1. It imported quickly into COW Express. I played out...

Re: Interface options (backburner)

Two more interface suggestions on an already great product: I almost always set my COW Professional game file window so that it takes up nearly half the width of the screen. That way I can have two files open and visible at the same time. I also adjust panels within the COW window about the same way...

To the left is a page from Volume 2 in the Kindle format.To the right is the same position in COW Pro. (Note that some of the ...
