Hi Stacey,


It can be a bit awkward; I often have trouble, myself. You may be trying to place chequers at the wrong end of the bar.


Chequers go on the bar about 1/3 of the way up on the side they enter, i.e. away from the player who owns them.


Ctrl drag should work.

Left-click to place the bottom player’s chequers, on the top portion of the bar.

Right-click to place the top player’s chequers, on the bottom portion of the bar.


I hope this helps. Email me if you still have trouble.


To developers:

Could this be improved to make it easier to use? Suggestions:

Dragging should acceptable over the whole length of the bar.

As should left- or right-clicking.


The intent of the user is unambiguous, so gnubg should handle it, and the position the chequers where it wants them.

I apologize if this has been answered but my searches on the subject have been fruitless so far.
When setting up a position for analysis in Edit Mode, I am able to position checkers anywhere except the bar.  I've tried left/right clicking on the bar and also used Ctrl with drag/drop with the following results:
Left click:  nothing
Right click:  box comes up offering either Undo Move or Score Sheet
Ctrl drag/drop: I can drag the checker to the bar but when I release, it doesn't stay - it simply returns to the original position
