Hint On Working with PGN Databases

     Several of my databases are in PGN format which cannot be manipulated using either Fritz 12 or Chess Assistant 16. For example, neither program allows you to delete games that are in PGN format. You have to either convert the database by copying the games into the program's format or else use a text editor to manually delete the unwanted games from the PGN file. 
     If you want a simpler way to manipulate PGN databases the easiest way is to download WML Software's Chess Pad. It's a PGN database game viewer and editor with a lot of functions that can also be used with Winboard and UCI engines for playing and analysis. It's also simple to use! So, if you have PGN databases that you want to work with then Chess Pad will get the job done without any fuss.
