Is there a way to export the private game notes with the game itself (as a part of the pgn file)?

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to export my games together with the private notes I write on the "Notes" tab that is right next to the "Chat" tab. I use the private notes section to review my games, basically commenting my moves, how the game went and comparing my analysis to what the computer analysis says. When I export my games, the file I obtain only contains the moves and the clock time for each player, is there a way to also export my notes with each game?

Thanks.

Not practically, no. While there are some workarounds, I'd suggest you use standard means of annotating in a PGN, and comment on corresponding moves. Alternatively, you can add the entire thing as a comment at some part of the PGN.
You add comments to moves by writing them within braces {} after a move (e.g. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/nph-chesspgn?text=1&gid=1241505 )
If you want a simpler way, you can use Study to analyze and annotate your games (Learn>Study or Menu>Study on Analysis board of the game you want to analyze).
