I am looking for a way to connect tree positions: Suppose I have analyzed the position after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6. Now I want to have the tree connect from the starting position. What do I do?
I know one can let IDeA do this automatically: The tree will be searched for disconnected positions and the connections are added automatically (as I understand it). However, this is not good, because the moves connecting two tree positions may be horrible blunders.
One can also schedule the relevant positions. However, I don't like this, either. Firstly, it takes time; secondly, it will lead IDeA to add positions to the tree which I don't want to have in it (if, e.g., the engine likes 1.d4 better).
So are there other ways? The ideal solution, in my view, would be this: Possible connections are being searched and I can decide which ones should be added. So maybe this is already possible?

Another, related question: I haven't found a way to let IDeA simply taking the position on the board as root (without copy/pasting it). Is there a way to do this?

Kap with that last part, do you mean from the sandbox or within the idea module?  In sandbox under analysis I have the option to send a game to an existing IDEA project as a new root and in idea I have a root button to add a position as a new root (just move the pieces around in IDEA and then hit root).  But I suspect you know that so apologize if it is not useful - I think I may not understand what you are asking?

Yes, this is the closest thing to what I was looking for, thanks. Unfortunately, if I already have a rot position defined, this will not replace the root, but only add it as second root.
Okay, I will probably get used to needing a couple of clicks more than before.

Now I understand - I don't think there is any one-click root replacement.  What I do is add the new root, then in the project status window (on my setup lower right) I use the hyperlink for "xxx root node(s)" to bring up the list of root nodes and I disable the one I don't want to analyze any longer.  It then finishes the tasks that are already queued but then focuses on the new root.  If you want to kill the queued tasks you probably need to disable the root first, then use the manage link in the stage status window to kill the queued tasks, then add your new root after that and it should start going from there.  At least that is how I "think" it works.  There is probably a way to automate what you want into a custom action, but someone more knowledgeable than me (i.e. almost anyone on this forum :P) will need to explain that.

I'm pretty sure the way you described it is how it works.
