Recently, I was emailed a PGN file of a chess game I wanted to look over. When I opened the attachment in the email, it said I can "Open with Stockfish". Now the game is in the Stockfish app but when I hit "load game", it automaticly opens the game I want to go to but then instantly crashes. I can't load any of my saved games now because it instantly crashes when I click "load game".

    I found out the PGN file contains variations. For example, on move 12, it shows multiple moves a player can do, including what the player in the game actually played. Is there a way to delete this file on Stockfish? Other than clicking "load game"

    The easiest way to deal with this is to delete the app and reinstall it.

    It doesn't help. I think, it's a bug.
