    I think it would be great to be able to save notebook changes when it's your move without having to make a move. Is it possible to add the save notebook changes button here as well??

    what would the point be in analyzing the board and then not moving, when its your go?

    More time to think, but not lose what you had thought of already. Fairly obvious, I would have thought.

    Keeping notes on a bit of paper works, but wastes trees...

    There's always Microsoft Word, or NotePad, or whatever incarnation of a writing program to use as well. ^^;

    Then again, there is always a Site Ideas forum where you could suggest ideas for improving the site. Like, for example, suggesting to be able to store notes when it is your move, so you wouldn't have to open notepad or word.

    Russ,it's a couple of years that this useful feature is requested,I don't think it would require much time to implement it.....

    Perhaps a threat might be more persuasive.

    (Only a suggestion.)

    Guys,

    The new board code is looking pretty cool, and I absolutely promise this feature will be in before release.

    I may even put up a few screen shots over the next few days, but visually, there isn't that much to get excited about. The analyse board page is much improved though.

    I have trashed most of the animated board code I previewed back in the springtime, and have been a little less ambitious with the changes, adding what I believe people want rather than something I was pleased with technically! (Who wants fully animated boards anyway&hellip

    Below is the list of the visible key features, although a lot of stuff changed to support future projects, which is not obvious to the user. Anyway, anything mentioned here should make it into the final code, but I reserve the right to pull them for any reason.

    Main board :
    Flipping the board at anytime.
    Animations for castling and en-passant before the move is submitted.

    Analysis/history board :
    Double click any piece to pop a menu. Colour and piece type can be changed, or the piece removed altogether.
    Experimental lines can be 'rewound' - much like an undo. This includes changes made from the above menu.

    The 'board painter' for the set piece games will be replaced by the same system.

    Oh, and you will be able to resign games at anytime and save notes when it is your move.
