New Chess Board Layout

Hi Greg;

My game board changed to the 'new' board layout. How do I change it back? I don't see a button at the bottom of my screen that will allow me to change the layout back. I also don't see a 'comments' field as with the previous board layout. Could you please help?

Thanks
Maksim

Hi Greg
I was wondering if you could explain how you pick the pairings for the Feb chess tourney that just started? Me and my dad have virtually the same ranking but his group isnt anywhere near as hard as mine :shock: ..so i was wondering how you create the pairings?
