Element information

The normal view of a sequence (by double-clicking) shows the annotations as boxes along the sequence, but often there is more information available about sequences. This information is available through the Element info view.

To view the sequence information:

        Select a sequence in the Navigation Area and right-click on the file name | Hold the mouse over "Show" to enable a list of options | Element Info (Image element_info_16_n_p)

Another way to show the text view is to open the sequence in the View Area and click on the "Show Element Info" icon (Image element_info_16_n_p) found at the bottom of the window.

This will display a view similar to fig 12.16.

All the lines in the view are headings, and the corresponding text can be shown by clicking the text. The information available depends on the origin of the sequence.

Some of the information can be edited by clicking the blue Edit text. This means that you can add your own information to sequences that do not derive from databases.
