    What happens when you click 'Apply' from the comments window? Does it actually save the PGN?

    Also, and sorry if I missed the answer, is there a way to view more than 1 game at a time?

    Not that I'm aware of, but you could always just open up a second copy of the program and few the second game this way.  I tried it and it works fine.  Right now I have two copies of the program up, and I'm analyzing two different games at the same time, with two different engines.

    By now I'm sure you've tested this for yourself, and discovered that no, it does not.  You have to click FILE and then SAVE PGN to save it.

    That would have been a good idea. Tongue Out

    Probably hard to believe I am a programmer missing an idea like that.

    You can view two games at the same time.  If you open one game up in the main window, you can open a second game in "browse" mode by right clicking it in the game list window.

    Thanks Pawnpatrol.

    It appears you can open as many of these as you like.

    I recently moved from Scid to Scid vs PC because I'm willing to start working more with a database, so I thought the updated version would be better.

    The problem is that Scid vs PC includes in Annotation the "Cut off threshold" option, which has a maximum of 10. If I put 50, it will lower itself to 10. This causes to stop annotating variations for very big blunders that I commit because I'm a newbie. And most importantly, doesn't annotate obvious checkmates I miss because they are above the threshold.

    Is there any way to disable this threshold cap, or at list set it very high so I don't miss the variations of obvious checkmates?

    (I attach a picture as an example. It didn't annotate a checkmate a missed repeatedly just because of the threshold cap!)

    Yah... this is something that is missing. Maybe i will code it, but this feature is pretty d*** complicated already.

    Oh, I didn't realize you were in this thread. Thanks for your reply!

    I think that feature will help mostly lower level players, maybe some medium level players too.

    Meanwhile I run the analysis configured: Add variations > All movements. It's messier and I have to check the score of each variation to see whether it's above the threshold or not, but at least I get all annotations.

    Thanks for all your effort with this software.
