With ChessPad you can create nice-looking annotated games or positions, and they can be printed easily. In this post I will show how to put markings on the board and how to add diagrams in the game notation.
Add board markings
To highlight a square, Alt+click on the square to put in a green highlight, Alt+Ctrl+click for yellow, Alt+Shift+click for red.
To draw an arrow on the board, keep Alt pressed while dragging the mouse from the start square to the end square to put in a green arrow. For a yellow arrow drag with Alt+Ctrl, for a red arrow drag with Alt+Shift.
To remove a square highlight or an arrow, just apply the same color highlight or arrow again. (or just Alt+Click twice to remove the highlight and Alt+drag twice to remove the arrow.)
To remove all board markings, use the menu command Position->Delete Marks.
Add diagrams in the game notation
To add a diagram after the current move in the game notation, insert a diagram symbol. Use the menu command Position->Symbols (or press Ctrl+A) and the Comments window will open on the symbols page. Here are two diagram symbols.
You can choose between adding a diagram with the white pieces at the bottom or a diagram with black pieces on the bottom. Click the diagram you want, click OK and a diagram will appear in the notation. To remove a diagram, open the Comments window again, and click again on the diagram marker to unselect it.
