    What is the use of the notebook during games?

    How do I enter analysis for every half-move of a game that I am playing.
    I would like to input and save some analysis on a game I am currently playing, but do not know how to save it for every move.

    Can someone please help me.

    I would be most grateful for any relevant replies.

    Thank you all.

    You use the notbook for yourself to remind you of the good move (master plan) you just have in mind to beat your opponent 😉
    Write it down, move and see that it does not work, because your opponent just moved something else 😵
    BTW: you can edit the notebook even when it's not your move (think while (s)he's thinking...)

    Like Thire said, it's just a place to hold next move, or a line of moves... not enough room to track a whole game with notes.

    Pick up 'winboard' and you can save each game as a PGN, and enter all the notes you like. I use winboard just to back moves up and try new lines... and paste my line into notebook. If the line changes, I change my notes.

    Thanks.

    I would like some more information, though.

    What is 'winboard'? Please explain.
    Can you download it for free off the internet? If so, what is the website?
    Thanks.

    Skims.
