Incidentally, how can you see what is new or improved in each version? Is there a readme text somewhere like with other programs? Undecided

Edit: Ignore this, I've just found it: changelog.txt in the \ChessBase\CBase13 folder. It looks like a lot of the changes are for compatibility with Windows 10.
It says: Quote:
CB 13.13
     - On high resolutions the quickboard was displayed after each program start.

which must be my problem ... except that it is still there! Maybe they just fixed it for Win 10 (I tried this and then reverted back to Win 7, which is still superior in many ways)

I finally decided to try the upgrade again as it had now reached 13.13 (instead of my 13.10) ... and back came those annoying 'quick boards' everywhere! Angry
If I close them they come back again. Am I the only one suffering this?
Oh well, back to 13.10 again! Roll Eyes

Does anyone know how to control (or stop) those annoying pop-ups telling me there is a program update that appear every time I start CB13?
I don't want to update while there is still that problem of 'returning' quick boards. Of course, if this has been fixed I would upgrade, but it doesn't say what version it wants me to upgrade to.

In ChessBase 12, you can do it like this:

In the "Home" tab, go to "Edit Game Data" in the ribbon.  That will pull up a box with the game data.  In that box, just to the right of the space to put in the tournament name, is a little grey box labeled "Details."  (You can see it on the picture that Brabo provided.)  Anyway, click on "Details" and it opens up a new box for editing the tournament details.  Choose "Place" from the menu at the left and then input the site information (nation, city, etc.). 

As Papageno notes, when you copy the game as a PGN, that information will automatically get put into the headers.

foreknights,
problably, you can go and save your game in a cbh file first. As brabo points out, there is a modal dialog next to "tournament" where you can enter details like city/place/site (don't know how it is labeled). If you later drag-and drop your game from a cbh-database to a pgn-database, ChessBase correctly moves the information to the "Site" tag of a PGN structure.

This works for me in CB13 but I would guess CB12 does it similarly. Sure, this is a bit clumsy. Anyway, ChessBase seems to me not to be too much interested in fully supporting pgn as a database structure.

I use Fritz14 interface but CB12 is probably the same.

If you have a chessbase format of file then you can just click on the tournament details as I show in the picture below. Click on the picture to enlarge it.


For a pgn I assume you better open the file with e.g. notepad and write the site info directly in the text as the box "details" seems not to work with this format and the interface. An alternative is to convert you pgn file to a chessbase format, fill in the site info and reconvert it to pgn.

Personally I never fill in the site info but I guess some people prefer to have this info.

[Event "Open"]
[Site "?"] <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
[Date "2015.10.01"]
[Round "?"]
[White "name"]
[Black "name"]
[Result "*"]
[ECO "A00"]
[WhiteElo ""]
[PlyCount "1"]
[EventType "corr"]

I have tried to get an answer from ChessBase but I'm not getting much joy in getting the correct answer.

I have CB12, Could someone tell me how to input info *In the Site section of the header* [Site "?"] how to input info were the question mark is,It is not clear how this is done.

This assumes that you're using a 64bit version of Chessbase.


Thanks, but I'm using a 32 bit version, where can I find that?

1. Download this file for SP10:
http://download.chessbase.com/updates/C13/CB13_x64_10.txt

2. Rename the file from .txt to .exe

3. Install the SP and you're good to go.

This assumes that you're using a 64bit version of Chessbase.

I just allowed CB 13 to upgrade to the latest version (11, I think) and since then I keep getting those annoying little boards on every games base, plus in the main window. I close them and everything works OK until I next open ChessBase and then the boards come back again.
As there doesn't seem to be any advantage to having this particular version (it was working great before, and the little boards never bothered me ... I never saw them) does anyone know how I can go back to the previous version?
