Re: Compatibility topics

It looks like the screen capture came out small. Sorry about that. Can't seem to fix it, at least not tonight.

Re: Compatibility topics

Two cases of PGN import: I imported the recent PGN version of The King's Indian Defense, Move by Move, by Sam Collins into COW. Looks great so far! I imported David Vigoritto's Attacking Chess The King's Indian Defense vol1. Despite the fact that it is somewhat older, it is a great resource and even...

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...

Re: Compatibility topics

I've uploaded all 5 volumes, taking care to open the text file and removing the non-game introduction to each volume before uploading the PGN games. Works great!

Re: Compatibility topics

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 ...

Re: Chess game statistics

I've learned a little more. For CA users, do a search and find your games. Then go to "Advanced" to "Statistics" and "results." It was easier in Exachess!

Re: Older ebooks to the 2016 format

I hope B-Savage was able to resolve his problems. I have now converted some 50 COW Express ebooks to the new COW Pro format. The largest was 3.5 gigs. The process works without a hitch for me. I'll provide some details for anyone who has the same memory constraints as I have. I have two ASUS laptops...

Re: Using COW Professional - Basic questions

Thanks John, I confirmed your answer to my third question. It's kind of neat in operation, though I don't know if I will use it. As to 2, I think you are basically right, but there seems to be a twist of sorts. Here is a test case example. I have a database with the following moves (PGN, Export line...
