unfortunately the handling is “suboptimal”. cant say i know of a better method . do you know that the small numbers in the log that seperate the meassages are clickable? they will take you to the respective position on the board (but keep in mind sometimes the log entry can be written for the follwing move, sometimes for the one just played). dont know if that helps.
i myself have trouble even reading the log and seeing the board at the same time, because my screen is quite small. after the move tree appears i have about 4cm of chat window left . i manage by going through the game with arrow keys and scrolling the chat window. but thats just for reading, not taking notes at the same time.
well maybe you can figure something out . let me know if you do.
i hope you find a way to enjoy it! thanks for taking a look at it!
EDIT: Things should be a little easier now with the new interface. The board wont slide out of view anymore.
