    I would like to have a sandbox chessboard, which i could use for chess puzzles or otb play on screen.
    the idea is I can choose to start in a beginning position or set the board pieces to a puzzle or for example go through a match from the newspaper (etc) without setting up my real chessboard.
    Maybe a save board setup option could be nice!!!11

    There is a sand box already, but perhaps not what you're looking for:

    Click "New Game", choose "Advanced Options", and put a X in "Play from set piece" checkbox. Now you have something like a sandbox.

    Is this of any help?

    Thank you for the tip on download, Rag, appreciated!

    Do you know any more things that is useful for chess players, downloadable, that you can recommend?

    Chess mentor is probably the single greatest learning tool out there. You "have" to pay for it though.
