    Re "Notes" Will my notes be shown to me alone when my opponent makes his or her move? I did read all the FAQs to no avail. Thank you. Ray

    If you put your notes in the right spot, they will only be seen by you. Be very careful, though, that you don't put your notes in the message opponent part.

    LOL, I've done exactly that! I just wish I could have seen my opponents reaction when he/she saw what I had done!

    I believe you cannot. The current note erases the former note (which erased its former note (which erased its former note, et cetera)).

    But if you don't delete what you have written earlier, it will be part of your new note. It won't say which move it belongs to, so you might want to include this information in your notes.

    Just delete what you wrote and click on "save notebook changes".

    That way, you'll not be able to retrieve it, unless there is a hidden archive somewhere which I haven't found yet.

    You shouldn't have to do anything to see them, other than to go to the game. The notebook should show up automatically unless it is empty. If this doesn't work for you, I have no idea what the problem might be.

    By the way, in the new board version it's also possible to save notes when it's your turn, but you don't want to make a move yet. To do that, you write your notes and then click "Submit Move" without actually moving any pieces.
