Help, Instructions for the Animations

Viewing Animated Plays and Diagrams...
To view these animations, you must have Adobe's Flash Player on your computer. Most home computers already have the Flash Player installed (about 99%). But if you find that when trying to view an animation, only a blank window pops up, then you need to install the Flash Player. You can download the Flash Player for free.

In the Premium Members section and mobile version, the Flash player is not required as there are optional HTML5 animations which are compatible with computers or devices that do not have the Flash player (including the iPad, iPhone, etc).

Printing Articles, Using the Playbook...
The animations are very helpful in bringing the plays and diagrams to life, showing player movement and timing. It is possible to print pages from an animation by either using your keyboard Ctrl + P, or by right-clicking on the animation and then selecting "Print" from the pop-up menu. Better quality printouts can be obtained from printing the main article itself. If you want to print plays (and view other articles), use the menu on the left, or the Playbook Index
load the desired play or article, and then right-click and select "Print". For best printing results, use the Premium Members section, the Deluxe CD or the download products... there are pdf files for each article, and these make for nice, clean printouts.
