I'm looking to use the Setup Board screen in Scid Vs. PC
to set up a board that shows black at the /bottom/ of the screen.
(In other words, the board is shown from black's perspective).
I tried using "Swap Colors", "Invert" and "Transpose" to
flip the board to make it easier to setup the position. However,
I can't get any of them to work correctly, because scid vs pc
still thinks that A1 is on the bottom left, so it tries to move
pawns backwards (to Queen).
What's the purpose of the Swap Colours, Invert and Transpose
buttons, and why isn't there a simple "flip board feature"?

You're right that this board set-up isn't great, or very easy to grasp.
And it needs drag and drop, but the coding is non-trivial.
Maybe a simple 'flip' would be an idea, but it is achievable by an
and we need a transpose to compliment the search current-board feature -
which doesnt have a transpose option.
I just made these buttons because i'm often setting up positions from (a
and these three cover all the bases for when i forget which colour i was.
PS. I looked at quickly adding a transpose to search current-board but this
non-trivial. *If anyone would like to get their hands dirty coding
tkscid.cpp::sc_search_board, it would be great*. The existing <flip> option
is for "Ignore Colours" and is not a transpose.
