DiagTransfer is a chess position editor (fen/EPD) with special features. Copy diagrams from another program or a web page using a semi-transparent window to overlay the diagram and "trace" the pieces. Change pieces with drag 'n drop and print very high quality diagrams.
( A free positions Chess editor tool with semi-transparent window copy mode.
The simplest way to copy chess diagrams from one program or web page to another quickly and easily.
Copying chess diagrams with a classic position-editor is hard work : you must have both your position-editor and your document/web page application open, and must constantly go back and forth between the two. It becomes a tennis match of sorts: Looking at the diagram you wish to copy in application A, switching over to application B to place the piece, and going back to application A to verify the accuracy of the layout,...etc.
With DiagTransfer you transfer the diagram by setting the DiagTransfer window in semi-transparent mode and resizing a board on the diagram to be copied. At this point, you have only to « trace » the pieces - no need to remember piece locations !
Even better, you dont need to change pieces, with the pieces-bar, with a new program capability you change pieces with a little mouse drag.
Note : a piece-bar is still displayed if you prefer this method.
DiagTransfer is the best tool to quickly capture a position when you watch a live chess game on a web page and want capture a position and paste it in a chess program.
Print high quality diagrams
DiagTransfer utilizes a very high quality True Type Font for its characters, enabling the user to print very high-quality diagrams. The picture above is only in-screen resolution of 72DPI (72 dots per inch) and gives you a poor preview of the results you will get a printed page using only a normal quality mode (300DPI).With a fine quality paper and a 720DPI resolution you will get perfect quality ! Even better than diagrams printed in high quality chess books.
