I am learning how to use SCID vs PC on my Linux machine and I find the program very useful and well-written. I am reading through Lasker's book Manual of Chess and I would like to create my own "studies' (to use the Lichess termiology) based on what I've read from the book (various defenses, openings etc.)
While I am able to use SCID to log into FICS, play against Stockfish, view famous games (using PGN files downloaded from www.chessgames.com) the one thing I cannot seem to be able to do is create my own study.
To be specific: sure, when open SCID I can shuffle pieces on the board according to how Lasker tells me to, and add annotations, variations, colored arrows and then save the resulting set of moves in a pgn file.
But once I want to start studying a new or opening, I don't want to have to create a NEW pgn file: I'd like to have a single PGN file containing, say, "chapters" as is done in Lichess studies. Is this possible?
Or are the SCID database files the way to go here? They seem a tad complicated at first glance.
