How do you print a game from Scid? Thanks!
Direct printing is not possible.
It is necessary to export one or more games to a .html (or LaTeX, advanced) file and the print it:

Re: SCID 4.7

I'm using a multi-monitor setup on Windows 10. I'm curious if anyone else gets this error, or if anyone has experienced this kind of thing on other programs and has come up with a fix.

Re: SCID 4.7

Hey, I really like this new version! Sadly, whenever I resize the window it lags behind by some seconds (using Win10). Do you know how I could fix this? Hi, thanks for trying the new version. I tried to reproduce the behavior (installed SCID4.7, resized and maximized the window) on a couple of Win1...

Re: SCID 4.7

How do you flip the board on Scid 4.7? First clicking on the "hamburger button" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamburger_button ) under the board and then clicking on "rotate". Can the analysis engine line font be changed to something bigger? Yes, selecting the menu "options" -> "fonts" -> "fixed".
