I am using scid version 4.6.2. How can I flip the board such that I get black's point of view?

There should be a flip button somewhere, but I do not see it:

I've enabled all toolbar buttons as well:

  • Never used Scid but is it hidden in one of the dropdown menus? If I had designed this UI (which I probably wouldn't have) I might have "Show Blacks POV" as a checkbox in Options or something. – undergroundmonorail Apr 13 '16 at 16:28

    @undergroundmonorail: Scid's UI wasn't really designed, it sort of happened – RemcoGerlich Apr 14 '16 at 12:01

So, for future reference, the option is under: Edit -> Setup Start Board..., or by pressing S.

Update: There is another way! Click on the 'menu' icon below the board (three horizontal bars), then on the what I see as a 'crop' icon (on the far right), and then following menu pops up:

There is a simple keyboard shortcut for it: You can just hit the "."-Button, when the board is "active" (you can use the arrow-keys to make or take back a move).
