Want to know how to make diagrams and kifu in the style of old Japanese books?
Here’s a quick guide.
Get your kifu. If it’s already on OGS, that’s great; if not, upload it to your SGF library.
Make a review. If you work in analysis then you could accidentally lose your labels.
If you want, remove the coordinates using the Toggle coordinates option in the sidebar.
Change to the “book theme” in your profile menu: tenth board, first stone style. Feel free to play with the luminosities in the colour menus.
This is the work – label the stones with Japanese numbers. You’ll require these numerals:
|二十 / 廿||20|
|三十 / 丗||30|
廿 and 丗 are non-standard but are very useful for long diagrams, avoiding font shrinkage.
For how to apply the labels, see my tutorial at Review request (lowly kyus) - #9 by bugcat – tl;dr the A label tool has a shift menu that accepts custom inputs.
6, Add any necessary further labelling if required, eg. notation of captured stones. I added the explanation “木谷実 一段 / 久保松勝喜代 五段 / 十大正十月十一日” (Kitani Minoru 1p vs Kubomatsu Katsukiyo 5p, 11th October Taisho 10 (1921)).
