It's still so buggy?
I bought CB 11 and considered briefly an upgrade - hoping for a stable version... no real need of new features; but if I am not missing something, the upgrade price from CB 11 to 12 ( http://chessbase-shop.com/en/products/chessbase12_upgrade_engl ) is the same as CB 12 Download version ( http://chessbase-shop.com/en/products/chessbase12_download ) - 99€ ?  Huh
imho a fair price for the old users should be something like 49€  Roll Eyes

This really sucks. I bought ChessBase 12 and it's really buggy even after the last updates. Sometimes the variations show up, sometimes they don't. Sometimes the text is correctly aligned, sometimes it doesn't. Oh, well, shame on me for spending over a $100 for a cheesy program.

Well, I have CheeseBase 11 and there's not an option to delete all color commentary. there's an option to delete all commentary but not just all the color commentary. Dunno if that makes any sense.

In the old Chessbase, you could go to "Insert" and go down to "Delete all commentary" or type "Shift Cntrl Y".

Is there a way to delete all color commentary at once?

And in "customize" are there tons of shortcuts?

TIA!

I actually upgraded to 12 from 10 and am very happy with it. I immediately updated the software, and I haven't had a single problem so far. My CB10 bugged out once or twice a week.

I like the new version and the new features. Not a huge upgrade, but it was worth it for me.

Are there any ChessBase 10 starter kits available anywhere from a reliable source?  All the reviews I have read on the database versions seem to indicate that this may have been the most stable.  The problems with this 12 version, from what I am reading, is that it is pretty buggy.  I have the old 8 version, but it is pretty out-of-date.  The descriptions of the problems with version 11 appear even more negative than for 12.
Too bad the ChessBase products are so bloody expensive.

Did the themes, tactics, strategy, and endgame keys go away in CB12? I can see them in CB11, but they aren't there when I look in CB12.


Found out where it is hidden. There is a option on the misc tab in options for making them visible.

I was excited about the new features in ChessBase 12 but held off for a while because of the problems that people were reporting with the shipping version. I now have it and have updated to version 5 online, and have had almost no problems (certainly no more than with ChessBase 11). So if anyone was delaying their purchase for the same reason, my experience is that the program is pretty stable now. Just be sure to do the online update.

Now I have a strange problem.
My fritz trainer dvd's don't play in chessbase 12 anymore after last update!!
In Chessbase 11 they do!

To answer my own problem: I reinstalled my laptop cause more went wrong like Windows 8 tiles not working anymore.
Probably it strangely enough had something to do with my virusscanner. Now Chessbase 12 seems to work fine Smiley

I had been experiencing an issue with doing database maintenance on CB12.  I was receiving an error message when I tried to pack a database to remove deleted games.  I reported this to CB support and they addressed it in the most recent program update which I downloaded this past week (version 5 I believe.)  I am pleased to report that the problem is fixed and everything works correctly.
