Show folder elements in a table
A location or a folder might contain large amounts of elements. It is possible to view their elements in the View Area:
select a folder or location | Show () in the Toolbar
select a folder or location | right click on the folder and select Show () | Contents ()
An example is shown in figure 3.6.
Figure 3.6: Viewing the elements in a folder.
When the elements are shown in the view, they can be sorted by clicking the heading of each of the columns. You can further refine the sorting by pressing Ctrl ( on Mac) while clicking the heading of another column.
Sorting the elements in a view does not affect the ordering of the elements in the Navigation Area.
Note! The view only displays one "layer" at a time: the content of subfolders is not visible in this view. Also note that only sequences have the full span of information like organism etc.
