    I would find it incredibly useful to have a flip board feature when analysing. Quite often when I view a situation from my opponents point of view I can quickly see his plan, as well as the holes that are in my plan!

    One thing you can do is go into the persons profile and look at their current challenges. Just search for your name and there you go 😉

    The flip board feature is already available when you go to print the board, but it would be much handier if it was also a feature of the analytical board as well.

    Yes, it offers much in that a change of "perspective" refreshes ones thinking.
    Fischer was renowned for leaving the board and wandering round to the side and rear of the table to study the position, much to the chargrin of his opponent and officials. All legal though, but only on your clock.

    I thought in OTB, is was perfectly legal to wander around on your opponent's time, even to look from behind them.

    (I certainly hope not, I did it at the World Open a few weeks ago 🙂)

    Nope. If anyone turns their monitor upside-down off-clock then the "flash gonna get ya" and we all know what that means 😵
