Manually modify seating for next round

Select Contest menu > Swiss > Add/Delete/Redo to find the following option:

Add round X, but edit before inserting

Magic Contest will create the seating, but before actually applying the automatic seating, the suggested seating will show in a window on the screen. This window gives you the possibility to modify and fine-tune the seating according to your preferences.

There might be two pairs that cannot play a specific round and should be assigned each other as opponents. Maybe a medical doctor got an emergency call, and you assign that pair against the phantom pair for a couple of rounds. And so on…

There can be many reasons for using this feature. The reason this was developed at all is described in the case study found at the end of the Swiss documentation.
