DO-IT   Right click retracts

DO-IT   Register as PGN reader

ChessBase registers it own database formats in the Windows Explorer. This means that double-clicking a database file will open it with ChessBase. You can also have it do the same for PGN files files if you want.


DO-IT   Announce moves

Read out entered or replayed moves loudly.


DO-IT   Board sounds

Sounds for setting up the board, the ticking of the clock and the moves are played during a game.


DO-IT   Evaluation sounds

A sudden rise/drop in the evaluation of an analysis engine is accompanied by a warning sound.


DO-IT   Show Opening

Shows the name of the current opening in the status line.


DO-IT   Game History

Enables automatical saving of all your work in the daily history database.
