Go here for more info:

When you're in a chess board:

- Clicking on a grid while holding shift or right mouse button will create a circle marker.
- Dragging from a grid to another while holding shift or right mouse button will create an arrow to the point you landed.

There are multiple drawing colors. They can be used like below:
* Green is the default drawing color from using shift or right clicking to draw.
* Red comes from holding shift while using right click to draw.
* Blue comes from drawing with the left mouse button with shift and alt held.
* Gold comes from drawing with the right mouse button with shift and alt held.

Circles of different colors may exist in the same grid. Drawing a line that duplicates an existing one in terms of both starting point and ending point (or reverse) will delete it.

Thanks really, but you can also use right click instead of left click for blue arrows and circles.

If I'm in Mac with no mouse, how?

Hi chessindividual - I have a Macbook with trackpad - different parts of the track pad act as left and right mouse clicks - check your settings to make sure it is set up correctly. There are lots of Youtube vids to help. I can use all the colours - my only problem is all the arrows and circles disapear occasionally for no apparent reason even if I save the chapter of the study I am in

I know how to do the usual green arrows and circles, but do not know how to make other colors.

You can right click to make a circle and right click and drag to make arrows.
