    This was mentioned some time ago, but I thought I'd raise it again.

    As far as I know, there's no simple way to print out the chessboard in one of your RHP games. Printing screen in the browser produces chessboard with no black squares. The only way I know of is to load up a chess program, set up the position, and print from that program. That's certainly doable, but it's a bit of a hassle (and you can't do it unless you are at your home computer).

    It would be great if there were a link (perhaps from the game details or game history page) that brought up a page with a printable board on it.

    It would be great to be able to print out an A4 page with, say, six boards on it - to take away on holiday when web acces might be impossible.

    The only way I've found of doing it is to do a 'screen capture' and paste the board into an image manipulation program.
    I haven't tried it with the mini boards - are they big enough?

    It would be great to be able to print a whole "game-report":
    let's say six positions (little boards) und the hole game history with messages, ...

    That is an interesting idea - and I can even have it open up and appear in MS Word for windows users. 🙂

    Not a priority - but on the list, nevertheless. Just because it will be fun to program more than anything.

    Well, no.

    To tell you how I arrange my work on the site - I have a big blank book (which I call my 'daybook'😉 and I write lists of everything I am working on in there. So, is this list available? Yes, but only on my desk, and then only if you can read my terrible hand writing. 😉

    I am reluctant to publish it - as I don't want to set expectations for what is coming soon, and when it will be available, just in case something else happens in my life (like my day job demands more of my time)

    so I hope then you can read this note (printable game reports) still in a moth or two 😉

    I am able to print out any position quite easy. I have Winboard, a simple little program. Email the history of a game home, cut and paste the moves (or fen position) to Winboard and print screen.

    Unlikely as it may seem, I had a quick stab at this at the weekend. I wanted to release something simple before I went away – so I thought I would try and do this.

    Unfortunately, my quick fix method failed to work – so I will have to think of a new approach and try again another day.

    I just tried it and it worked fine, grid lines and all. Before I had to use the print screen option to use it, but today I didn't. You may also go into game history and try printing, especially if there are comments in the regular game you don't want to print.

    How about a straight jpeg link, for those of us who do not use microsoft products (well as little as possible).
