    If you don't have move confirmation turned on, there isn't much that can be done. Mouse-slips happen and your opponent is under no obligation to take a draw in such a situation.

    Nice guide! Another PGN-thing:  If I go to Analysis board, paste in a PGN-string I can play back the moves and all, but: How do I computer analyze the game? I see no button or anything fot this. I asked support but they just said "Go to the analysis in the main menue", ignoring the real question.

    Thanks, Matin_Stahl. It's hard to know when to stop looking for something you don't know if it's there at all.

    You can view your games in your game archive.

    What I am trying to figure out, and this page doesn't seem to include it, because it is so ultra-complicated I guess, is how do I do the following

    a) first i am looking at a slow game in progress, e.g. vote chess

    b) then I look forwards some moves (because Cedrik has posted his moves without making a diagram) so they are there in a diagram. This is in the Analysis board

    c) then I use the little Download iconto get the Pgn (all this is in chess.com v3. Also, earlier I had stated I was in v2, but that was because I forgot v3 was the current version).

    d) However (I think this is a bug) it only includes the moves from BEFORE I started analyzing, not the moves that I copied (since i think it does not work to copy and paste moves from HTML into the diagram-maker.)  That is to say, the Pgn that the helpful Download icon generates are including a COMPLETELY INADEQUATE amount of moves, given the situation and my intention.

     

    Therefore I am still without a way to go into analysis board and get the HTML moves into a diagram.   I can see this is an extremely subtle and difficult bug to deal with, so I am sure it will not be dealt with until chess.com version 7, or maybe after the Singularity occurs.

    Also, nobody has noticed my superb error report here, so I am going to make a new topic.
