Enabling or disabling overrides for displaying discards

To enable or disable overriding the default setting for displaying discards (as specified in the rules), do the following:

  1. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  2. Choose Gameplay under the User Interface section in the category tree of the Preferences dialog box.
  3. Check or uncheck the Allow change of display method during a game in progress box.

Note: If this option is checked, you can use the menu commands of the Discards sub menu (under the View menu) to arrange the discards. Otherwise the method of displaying discards is determined by the equivalent rule setting only and cannot be altered during the game. Note that if rules specify that the discards are hidden (placed face down on the board), the discards stay hidden disregarding the way they are arranged. Note too that if the discards are ordered per player, you can always choose whether each player's discards are placed directly above player's hand or in one common area divided in four separate fields.
