Hi, is it possible to search for more tha a manoeuvre in CB?
I don't manage to find the correct way to find for example the
manoeuvre : N from f3 to d2 to c4 to d6.


Yes. Let's assume it's a sequence of a white knight.

Insert the first move, wNf3d2; insert the next one: wNd2c4 and the next
one wNc4d6.

Check "check move order", check the length (in plies, so 8 ply in this
case if it's a sequence without other moves), because it takes four
moves to complete the moves, or more plies if there are inbetween white
moves) and search.

This is one of the games I found, with "check move order, moves 2 to 50,
30 plies long.
