    Ever get an answer to this? I've been combing the net looking for one myself. Really annoying that basic copy-and-paste commands don't seem to work!

    Found it.

    1. Run analysis, and let it finish.
    2. From the File menu, choose Copy --> Game.
    3. Paste into any text editor.

    The annotation symbols won't always come out right, so if you leave those on for the analysis you'll have some cleanup to do. But all the commentary is there.

    Running the analysis through a find replace is the best way to get the annotations right. They all come out as $number (I think N for Novelty is $18).

    I tried that as well. As I was at work, I ran out of patience trying to correlate the numbers with actual notations. Also, some of the symbols can't be recreated in our forums, so I need to delete some outright or use the alt-text for each. The latter started getting unwieldy, so I gave up work on it until this weekend.

    Xanthos, might you have a list of the symbols and their conversions handy?

    If you paste to Word first and then into a plain text format (such as a RHP textbox) many of the conversions will be done for you. What you will have to do by hand are the symbols without easy conversions to normal text (better than, some of the evaluation symbols etc.). I normally rewrite things like slight advantage black (written as an equals over a plus in notation) as something like =+ in plain text. Not exact but similar.

    Thanks. That sounds like as sensible a method as any.
