Hi there,

I'm trying to send a friend a game I've annotated using Rybka Aquarium (with !?= sybols, and colour annotations) however when one tries to open it in Fritz/CB light the annotations turn into gibberish.

Is there any solution for this to make the version compatible?

Thanks

Do you send the games in pgn format? It should work. You can also click on the little settings button at the bottom of the "clipboard" buttons and select to copy Text comments and standard markers only.

Felix, The PGN copy options: Copy moves & text comment only option doesn't work as expected. You still get this kind of output...
20. Qh4 {} $16)19. Nf4 Rxf2 20. Nxe6 fxe6 21. Qe4 Kf8
(21... Qc5 22. Rhg1 {} $18)22. Rhg1 Rxh2 23. Qxe6 {z wygrana bialych.}) 18...
Rxg2 19. Qf4 (19. Qe4 {[%t bLon] Silniejsze bylo z pewnoscia}$5) 19... Qc5 20.
Qe4 $2

... which is useless for pasting into a word processor or DTP program. Why can't there be a Copy notation option? That is, the right-click facility to copy exactly and only the contents of the notation pane?

I think there's the possibility to use "publish" and then export the notation as rtf document.

I don't want to create an RTF document, and then copy from that, which is relatively time-consuming; I want to right-click in Aquarium's notation pane in order to get something usable (humanly viewable) to paste into a document/program of my own choosing. The least that Aquarium should do in this regard is to have the possibility of copying "?" as a question mark and not "$2", and likewise for the other marks. It's frustrating to see the contents of the notation pane showing you what you want, but being unable to copy and paste it directly. So how about adding "Copy game as RTF"?

ok, good point. I'll let the programmers know.

Thanks Felix, I can get the comments to work this way (by using the settings button). I guess it's not possible to transport the colour annotations/arrows etc as Rybka/Fritz use different arrows etc?

thanks for your help.

yes, those markers won't work, there's no standard format for it.
