   pLOT 1.0.10i fixes a bug in the View/Edit Sequence window that can shift feature annotations when the Ctrl+C key combination is used to copy a highlighted text.  Additionally, a menu is available in the same window on right click when sequence has been selected that allows for copying of the sequence to the clipboard in a variety of formats.

   pLOT 1.0.10h is a minor patch that fixes the Edit Annotations (Ctrl+E) so that when you open it, it automatically goes to the feature you last clicked.  This was functional in the pre-1.0.10g version and got inadvertantly removed when changes were made to some code to accommodate the View/Edit sequence window.  A few other bugs have been fixed as well as the Tab order in the Annotations window.

pLOT 1.0.10g is out.  This update introduces the ability to edit the sequence and feature annotations from the "View/Edit Sequence" item under the "Edit" menu.  Aside from editing the sequence itself, you can now change.
* Edit: The link to the 1.0.10e full installation is fixed.  It was previously the link to the patch only *

The Edit Sequence Menu


A right click on a selection gives the option to edit any of the features selected.  Moving the cursor with the direction keys or mouse results in the lower status bar displaying which feature(s) you're on.

pLOT 1.0.10F

pLOT 1.0.10f patch (If you have previously run the 1.0.9f or 1.0.10e full installation) is now up.  A bug in the that sometimes caused the program to crash at startup if the last instance was closed at a certain height has been fixed.  Additionally, the View\Complete Sequence menu now opens the complete sequence in a new window that has the base pairs colored by their features' colors.  Moving features forward or backwards in the drawing order affects which color is shown between overlapping features.  Moving the cursor in the window or highlighting text causes the status bar at the bottom of the window to tell you which feature you're on/have selected.  This is a transition step to having the ability to edit the sequence in this window which has not yet been implemented.  See images below.  A few bugs that crept in during the addition of the undo/redo code has been fixed.

*Edit The View\Complete Sequence menu has been moved to Edit\Edit Sequence (Ctrl + Q)*
