I've installed scid yesterday and was wondering how to visualize an engine line on the board.

My approach is the following: setting up a position on the board by clickng "Game" -> "New Game", then starting the engine and stoping it after some time.

At "Analysis" window you can see variations that the engine came up with. How can I visualize some of these variations? I've tired clicking on "Add variation" as well as "Add variations" but nothing happened. If I click on "Add move" only one move is added (which is logical, haha, bud doesn't give me any clue on how to use this feature).

You need to bring up the separate "Analysis board" by clicking on the icon in the strip

  • Could you please add more information to your answer. The analysis board seems not to be interactive and displays variations only during the engine's runtime.
