The function “Collect Openings” is very useful for viewing openings in the database window. The function always applies to the database selected in the database window.
The program generates a new database that contains all the games that start with the same moves (openings variant) gathered together. This gives you a good overview of the openings in the database, just like the openings encyclopedia.
There is an overview of the openings system in the database list. The function generates notation for a variation tree with suitable games being shown as examples.
This function is especially useful if you apply it to databases that contain your own games. You are given an overview of the openings theory that is relevant to your own playing.
