Publish

There are many ways to publish your games. An RTF file which you can open in all word processors. A HTML file is ready for the internet. A PDN file is a fixed format to make exchange possible with other programs. When you publish on the internet with Javascript you can replay all moves.

RTF

An RTF file can be opened in all word processors. At Notation you choose the font for the notation. The main game moves are given in boldface. The annotations and variations appear normal and in italics. At Diagram you choose the font for the diagrams. You can specify if you want to embed diagrams in the file and even flip them.

HTML

The HTML file is ready for publication on the internet. Althought you can choose a font for the diagrams we advise to use pictures. When you choose Picture board the program creates a JPG for every diagram in the game. These diagrams look the same as the one on the main screen. When you choose Picture single piece the diagram is split into six small gif files. You can change the contents of these gif files at your own taste. The disadvantage of this type of publication is that you cannot replay the moves. If you want to replay the moves you have to use JavaScript.

Text

This is the flat text format for Windows and can be processed by any text editor. You can set the maximum line width. Diagrams are embedded in the notation with square numbers.

PDN

The PDN format is a fixed format to make exchange possible with other programs. It is strongly based on the format for chess games PGN (Portable Game Notation).

DOC

The program uses the extension DOC but this is not the famous Word formaat. It is a flat text format for Windows and can be processed by any text editor. This way to publish is suitable for games without variations and comments. The notation is printed in five horizontal columns by default. Each column contains one white and one black move and is sixteen characters in width. The program offers also the Flits/Truus format. This is almost the same as the DOC format but is a fixed format to make exchange possible with Flits, Truus and some other programs.

JavaScript

Publishing games on the internet with JavaScript is the best option because you can replay all moves. The diagram is split into six small gif files. You can change the contents of these gif files at your own taste. You can add a link to a PDN file on your page for visitors to download the games. The program not only adds the link but also creates the PDN file for you.
