LaTeX output - problem with coordinates for a selected area

Post by PatRidley » Sat Sep 26, 2020 3:23 pm

First of all, I want to thank you for all your work in producing and maintaining GoWrite. The British Go Association has been using it for more than a decade now for producing diagrams for the British Go Journal.

Lately I have been using the LaTeX/igo output. igo requires that the coordinates in the showgoban command for a selected board area run from bottom left to top right, i.e. that the letter and and the number both increase, e.g. \showgoban[l1,t7]. However, whenever and however I select the area, GoWrite2 produces coordinates running from top left to bottom right, e.g. \showgoban[l7,t1]. Is there a way for me to select the board area to produce the coordinates in the correct form, or is this a bug, please?

I am using GoWrite2 3.0.17 on a Windows 10 system.

Of course, it is easy to patch up the output before running LaTeX, but I would rather not have to. (Though patching is also necessary to replace letters on stones with triangle symbols etc!)

Thanks
Pat
