Coordinates option would be helpful I am not a great player and I am strong in algrebic co ordinates to just know it on the board. It would be great if you have options to display coordinate 2 more stars once that's available

Use grandmaster games instead? There are similar pc and online interfaces but this comes in in very handy indeed! Could you use grandmaster games instead? There are several databases available online. Also, it would be nice if there's a choice on which database to use: big, small, grandmaster, fics, etc. Well done sir, thank you!
