Default FRITZ 7 Documentation

I find the skinny 4" x 7" manual and the HELP FILE very limited. For
example: the HELP FILE "find/search" feature only eliminates scrolling
through the entries -- beyond that it is useless. There is no info on
the relative strengths of the various settings -- BLITZ settings,
FRIEND, etc. Deleting files does not delete them -- only draws a line
through the game description.

I'm beginning to figure out some of the things but one would think that
the instructions for a game should be less complicated than game itself?

Is there a PDF "walk through" on setting up, explaining, and using the
features of this game?

Thanks.

Don't know of any PDF.
To remove the deleted games, you should choose "tools - database -
remove deleted games", and click yes when promted "pack database".

PS: Yes, Chessbase is somewhat behind in their documentation to their
programs

Bob,

Try checking out Steve Lopez' technical notes,, which should still be
available at both the www.chessbase.com (in the support section) and
www.chessbaseusa.com. When Fritz 7 came out Steve did a series of
articles on the features and how to use them. You may also want ro
check out the series for he did for Fritz 6 as well since some
features may not have changed so might no be coverd ion the later
series.

Steve also wrote a "book" published on CD-ROM with a title like
"Using a computer to improve your chess". it consolidates the
information from many of his columns on the Fritz program and he added
further information not in his columns about how to use Fritz (or
really any chess playing program) to improve your chess. You should
be able to purchase it from Chessbase or ChessbaseUSA,

Mike,

So true, so true! Steve been writing so much good stuff, only problem
is, that many people asking questions in here doesn't know, or really
doesn't wanna read/find anything themself!

But your advice is probably the best major-advice!
