Some words about DiagTransfer:
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 .
