getting those book annotated games in your computer

I tried with ChessX as i have ubuntu as operating system. However, sideline variations i can't handle. There is a button, but it is just not activated, and the manual is very unclear, and no support option. So i think about purchasing a tablet, and get a board editor app. I've been searching in the internet for some time, but still am not sure what would be the best app for my purpose. Many thanks if you can do the right suggestion.

And what is the best software to create those .pdf files.

Are you talking about an ebook?

i have not selected books for .pdf. Apart from that I think that ebooks can make you lazy. I  think better is to study the commentary in the book, then at the game on your screen, and then next time use the book, going to and fro. Better for your visualization skills.

But returning to my question, it seems i need a board editor, but which one is most suited for sideline variations.

I've never had coaching, and i am doing very fine. I own three opening books: alekhine defence (lakhwala), kings indian defence (sam collins), and kings gambit (andrew soltis). I can follow the mainline, and sidelines up till 4 moves with a lot effort. Often sidelines are 10 moves deep. Only the kings indian defence book is obtainable as ebook.

If you can see the game on the screen, after some time I am sure you will be able to visualize it from the book.
