And it went zoom!

by Nadja Wittmann
8/30/2020 – Many users have comfortable — one could almost say “huge” — computer screens. So it is not surprising that texts in our databases and also those of ChessBase Magazine look almost “ridiculously small”. But that does not have to be the case! Solution: in the latest versions there is a zoom function which becomes available after you update your software online!

The Ruy Lopez is one of the oldest openings which continues to enjoy high popularity from club level to the absolute world top. In this video series, American super GM Fabiano Caruana, talking to IM Oliver Reeh, presents a complete repertoire for White.


Zooming in!

We received several customer inquiries on this topic, so here is a very brief explanation on how easy it is to bring the texts to a comfortable readable size. 

Erster Schreck

That looks too small!

Eingezoomt! - Puh! Geht doch!

Zoomed in! Got it!

To solve the problem it is not necessary to “tinker” with the screen resolution. In all current versions of our programs there is a built-in zoom function after the latest online updates.

Hier kann man die Auflösung einstellen

Here you can set the resolution. 100 means 100% — sharp and large

You can change the resolution either by tapping in the field or by using the arrow keys (+ to increase the resolution or - to decrease the resolution).
