I have Aquarium 2015 (I'm using Windows XP, so this is the last release that works on XP). I use the free Rybka 2.3.2a engine to play.
Aquarium has a setting which is not working as it should, or I misunderstanding it . . . So I ask for help to clarify this option.

In the Display options there is a Score display setting which can be set to Symbol, Absolute or Both.

Here is the screenshot:

I understand all the three settings (Symbol, Absolute and Both).
I set to Symbol as it is shown in the screenshot.

Here is the option description from the Aquarium help file:
"The Score display controls how engine evaluations are displayed.
Symbols displays Informator symbols indicating which side stands better (=, +-, -+ etc.)
Absolute shows positive scores when White stands better and negative scores when Black stands better. This setting is preferred by most players.
Both displays both Symbols and Absolute scores."

Here is a screenshot with my Analysis window, in the middle of a game playing against Rybka:

I marked with red the evaluation type. The problem is that despite I set to show symbols (+/=) for evaluation, in my analysis window the displayed evaluation always remains absolute (which is pawn unit values).

Is this a bug in Aquarium, or I misunderstand something?

Hi there.
I'm running Aq2018. I have had my options set to show 'both' since I installed it. As an experiment, I changed it to 'symbol' but it didn't change anything in the engine display window. It continued to show the symbol and the absolute value.

Perhaps one of the long-timers will come along and help.

That's what I'm talking about. No matter what you set it remains as it is by default.
