I like going through open variations and taking notes and saving them in my database.
However I have a problem. When I get to two of the exact same board positions and same color to play, if I got there via two different variations, any future variations I make and comment will be considered separate.
For example, suppose I start a game with 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 and add some variations with, e.g., 3.Nf3 and 3.Bc4 and make some comments. Then, in the same database, I add a game with 1.Nc3 e5 2.e4 Nf6. This leads to exactly the same position but the variations and comments from the 1.e4 variation are not shown.
How do I merge these variations or get SCID to understand that it's the same so it shows the variations after both move orders? I don't want to write a whole new tree and branches just because I switched up one move.
Or if anyone knows a different program I can use for this to save uncompleted games such as opening variations and I can write my notes that would be great.
