i am not using these GUI's too, only if i have to.
so i am no expert in chessbase gui's.

all i see is that with the hooks on the setting you give,
i still have the EMT in the comments of the games.

ok-- i can investigate further.
IMO the only method to transfer the NEW format is via the OLD CB-GUIs.

the games must have been saved in the cb-format, and not exported with the NEW
gui, instead loaded into the OLD GUIs and THERE exported into PGN.

this means you would have at least to have ONE installation on the machine e.g.
of Hiarcs7.32 or fritz5.32 or Fritz7 or whatever.

but all this "work" to go arround a new format that is not really giving ANY
advantage related with the OLD PGN + {search information} is not something that
makes me happy.

IMO the whole GUI is a can full of bugs. its annoying.
another bug is that the path of the books is always forgotten and you have to
give it the path again and again.
