Post WinChloe tips and tricks!
on: August 12, 2015, 11:54

I have been using WinChloe since 2012.
While the inbuilt help is reasonably good, there are sometimes issues for which I needed Christian Poisson's help. He invariably replies very fast and with a solution!
I thought posting the details of such issues here may be of use to others.
So.. I'll start off with a simple one:

How to enter "." or "," in the moves field? This is required, for example, in a H#2.5
Use the dot key of the numeric keyboard. "." or "," will be displayed based on the number format set under Windows.

Dear Shankar Ram,
thank you very much for this tip!!!
I am WinChloe user since 2000, but in newer versions I had a problem with
h#2,5 or h#2.5 (I not found a system when is necessary enter h#2,5 and when
h#2.5, quite randomly). The dot key on the numerical keyboard is a solution!

Thanks Vaclav!

Here's a further tip on the same issue. Hacked up by me when the other tip didn't work sometimes.

Open your text editor. Type "." or ",".
Press Ctl-A and Ctl-C.
Put the cursor on the moves field in Winchloe.
Press Ctl-V. 😉

Yes, I many times used a similar method, external editor is not needed. I prepare "2,5" in item "Twins", copy and paste to "Number of moves" and then delete from "Twins". But the solution with a dot key on the numerical keyboard is much faster.
