Quite a lot of chess questions involve analyzing a certain position or game posted by the user asking the question. For example -

Did Aronian make a mistake in the opening against Anand in round 1 of the FIDE Candidates 2014?

It would be useful if there is a way to download the game provided by the user as a PGN file for quick analysis with an engine (screenshot below).

    While it doesn't exactly download to a PGN file, there is a "Copy Game" option available from the down-arrow appearing at the top right of the PGN viewer. The game can then be pasted into a new/existing PGN file directly. – ETD Mar 16 '14 at 18:34

    Yes its a nice addition to a CHESS question and answer site to have PGN files downloadable. – LayoutPH Mar 19 '14 at 5:10
  • @EdDean post your comment as an answer? It seems to be the best answer so far, apart from copy pasting by hand or clicking "edit" and copy-pasting from there... – Rauan Sagit Mar 26 '14 at 19:55

    +1 That's useful, but a bit less user friendly. – Wes Mar 29 '14 at 4:13
