  1. Good work! Training opening lines really helped me in the last tournament with openings. I like that you can change and update the lines easily. Just a little bug though. When using sequential, example line 1/4 or 1/7 etc does not update. It would be nice to know which line you training on and can easily fix if need be. Thank you Lucas. This is looking good!

    1. Thanks Lee, added this information to the next update.

    2. Hello Lucas. What about the opening report? Still considering
      adding it?

    3. Yes Lee, it is interesting for me, then I´ll find the time to code, not now, and perhaps in a fast mode like to create an excel file.

    4. okay. Thanks Lucas... I will be waiting :)

  2. hello
    report a problem
    after update from 11.06 to 11.07
    when add an extern engine it seam that lucas are running in loop and must hard shutdown for reboot
    (linux and wine)
    11.06 work fine

  3. Thank you for writing this excellent program!

    Where is the option to train with opening lines? I can make them and edit them, but I can't figure out how to train with them.

    1. Editing one with some lines, and pressing Train in the toolbar.

  4. Oh thanks. The >> button with the Train option in the toolbar was invisible until I moused over it and clicked it, maybe because I have black as my general background color.
