    Is this possible?

    I'm reviewing a game that is waiting for my move. I'd like to enter some notes to view when I come back to it but I don't want to move at this moment.

    Yes, depending upon your browser you may be able to just enter then hit 'save changes' underneath..or just enter anything you wish to keep in the notebook and hit the move button without moving.

    This question has come up, and been answered, several times before. Perhaps it should be in the FAQ.

    Yes, enter notes into your notebook, and then click "submit move" but without making a move. The position remains the same, but your notebook is updated.

    I do that all time for the reason you mention. I spend a while analyzing and would like to make notes and return later to actually make a move.

    Or you could do it the way I do:

    1 Analyze a game deeply
    2 See that QxB is a disaster of a move
    3 Use notebook to remind self, "Don't play QxB!!!!!!"
    4 Come back to the game a few days later
    5 Play QxB

    I prefer to write my master plans in the message opponent box.

    That might not be such a bad idea.

    I am sure your opponent will be as confused as you.

    Just had a brainstorm: Write <fake> plans in the message opponent box! Would that be against the spirit of the game?
