Usage is fairly simple: play a match and at the end, navigate using the game
record panel. When on a move, in the analysis panel you will be able to select
one or more moves in the list and then you can press the cmark button to mark
them (you'll see a + beside the move number). Pressing cmark again will unmark
them (i.e. it works like a toggle). In a similar manner you can mark a cube
decision (with the difference you don't have to choose amongst multiple alternatives
like for a chequer play).
It is also possible to mark during the match: via the analysis panel (like above),
and via the hint window.

Once you have marked your moves/decisions you can:

- view which moves/decisions you have marked (Analyse/Cmark/[Cube/Move/Game/Match]/Show)
- rollout the marked ones with menu Analyse/Rollout, just below Cmark.
You have the choice to rollout only marked cubes, only marked moves,
only marked cubes and moves in (current?) game, or everything.
