Another question: How can I create an epd file? When I click on New... I only get two options under "save as type", si4 and pgn, but the wiki says it's possible to create new epd files.
At the moment it is not possible to create epd files.
It is not a difficult feature to add, I only wonder what the right behavior is for games that contain multiple positions.

I fiddled with the resize problem I have. I couldn't solve it. Though I noticed it is only significant when it displays a list of games - even if it is just one.
Respecting someone also means to tell them the truth if they are talking bullshit.

I am going to download SCID for the first time today. I am wondering if this Shane person is still involved or who is in charge of SCID.
No, the original author of SCID stopped working on it many yeas ago:

I'm the one maintaining the project since 2013.
Advanced Micro Devices fan.

Thank you Fulvio. However I see that the possibility to save the hash memory is still lacking. As you know, the capability to use persistent hash is a feature heavily used both by correspondence players and by people aiming to deep analysis. I am sure that the whole Scid community would be grateful is you guys could implement it.
