  pLOT 1.0.11b adds a few more fixes as well as a early stage bacterial promoter search tool.  The tool can be found under the Tools menu.  Clicking on an annotated feature prior to opening the tool window will set the search region to the region of the annotated sequence.  You can change it manually in the window.

   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.
