Don't display move number

Don't display move number

I don't see any reason to display the numbers for the possible moves. They are just taking space and confusing the user.

they allow easy keyboard shortcuts -- just press the number to select that variation.

I didn't notice the feature :-)

We may need a description about keyboard shortcuts somewhere in Info section.

Here is a summary as far as I found:
  • 1-9 : Select a move.
  • A-Z : Select a move by marker label.
  • I : Add the position as (or change the type to) Ideal move (unless marker "I" exists).
  • Right : Go forward by 1 move.
  • Left : Go back by 1 move (or 10 moves with shift key).
  • Up/Down : Vote for/against the position and its type.
  • ` : Pass. ('@' key for Japanese arrangement, may also vary for others.)
EDIT: The action of Up/Down has changed.

What about positions with 10+ moves?

The display order (1, 2, ...) of the moves should be according to the count of subsequenting moves. There are many positions that list rare variations first.

for example move 12 is blala bllaa
