Resolved: Analyis Board PGN for Export

dkeith

Sometimes I analyse games previously played on a real board on Analysis Board, but how can I save them as  PGN file that I can later export to a program like Fritz? I can readily see how to use Game Editor to copy the PGN or embed it on a blog or web page, but how do I save it as a file on my computer so that it can be re-opened later? On the games actually played on Chess.com it's no problem: I simply click Get PGN and indicate where to save it. Don't see that same option on Analysis Board, though. Or am I missing something?

go to game archive. at the bottom of the list it will have options to have your games in pgn format emailed to you.

TrentTucker

it will also have an option to select games individually as well if youre not interested in getting all your games in one file.

I think it is not possible. Can you copy the PGN from Game Editor and paste into Fritz, then save the PGN in Fritz? A lot of clicks though if you don't want to analyse the game immediately.

im not sure. ive had problems with the file they email you. i can use it in chessbase, but i dont have a pay account so i have to save all my PGNs every month. ive tried combining them into one file but unless i open it as a text file and edit it by hand there is no way i have found that i can combine the files. i personally use winboard. havent really tried to open my PGNs in it yet. not that i can remember.

@ TrentTucker

I was responding to dkeith. He's asking about how to save PGN from the Analysis board, not from the game archive.

TrentTucker

yeah i assumed that after looking at the post more. dont have analysis mode, so i cant help. sorry.

dkeith

Yes, I can copy and paste into Fritz. I just tried it. Thanks!

You're welcome.
