Re: RE chessbase light

Hmmmmmm... reactivate Ribbon... Well I have to minimize the Ribbon to play chess on a larger board. When done with the game I have to unminimize it to access the menus.

Not to the same extent, no. I realize this issue is a matter of taste. I am unassailable in my preferrences. Now. Please excuse me while I beat my head against the wall with frustration.
