Question for SCID users

Post by Amstaff » Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:07 am

Hello I use SCID for a lot of things, but I am just now trying to enter a new game manually. I don't see off hand how to put in the game information, players names, location, etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Game -> Save: Add New Game...

brings up a dialog box.

Well, one should admit that adding a new game in the menu option File | Save is not very intuitive...

I think SCID team should rethink and redesign the menu and options locations and descriptions. But anyway, IMHO, untill the appearance of Arena for Linux, SCID has been the best choice in the Linux boxes. I hope it will improve with the competition with Arena :)
