Manual trimming

Sequence reads can be trimmed manually while inspecting their trace and quality data. Trimming sequences manually corresponds to adding annotation (see also Adding and modifying annotations) but is special in the sense that trimming can only be applied to the ends of a sequence:

        double-click the sequence to trim in the Navigation Area | select the region you want to trim | right-click the selection | Trim sequence left/right to determine the direction of the trimming

This will add trimming annotation to the end of the sequence in the selected direction.
