Revised 22 November 2022
This feature can be used for:
Before the session starts, the Director or Teacher loads a PBN file containing the deals and commentary. This can be done either in Session settings or in Advanced.
The system displays information about what has been loaded.
Two examples: The first one has commentary. The second has results, imposed actions and PBN commentary.
Advanced button, then tick Show deal commentary
This can be switched on or off again at any time during the session. For example, it could be on all the time, so that the players see the commentary at the end of each hand. Alternatively, you might start with it switched off, then switch it on during a break or at the end of the session.
Button to display/hide commentary: clicking this will display the commentary.
The results will still appear below the commentary.
Clicking the button again will hide the commentary.
If there is no commentary, no button is displayed on the traveller.
There are 2 approaches:
If the deal appears more than once in the file, RealBridge only looks for commentary in the first instance of the deal. So, for example, if the PBN file has 3 results for Board 1, and the teacher wants to add commentary for a lesson, they should add the commentary to the first instance of the board.
