To display sequence features:

The visibility of feature (annotation) tracks in the Overview, Sequences view and Pairwise view is dependent on:

  • Whether or not tracks are visible in those views. To display hidden tracks, click on the plus sign next to the sequence of interest in the Overview or Sequences view.
  • Which boxes you check in the Tracks panel (see image below). Features can be displayed in individual views by clicking the Features boxes under: Overview details, Sequence details, and Pairwise details. Hover the mouse over a feature to view a tooltip with details about the feature. Note that after performing a multiple alignment, checking the Consensus box will also cause Consensus features imported with Features > Map Features to Active Consensus to be displayed.


  • Features (under Pairwise details*) – Check this box to display any available sequence features as Pairwise

To view a tooltip with details about a feature, hover over it with the mouse. Or select one or more features by clicking on them. You can then view information about them in the Details panel.

The same default color scheme is used for features in both MegAlign Pro and GenVision Pro.


To change Features options:

To learn how to access the options section for this track, see Tracks.

Specify the number of feature rows to display by typing a number in the Rows box or by using the up/down arrows. If features are overlapping, this indicates a need to increase the number of rows.

The example below shows three rows of features. The semi-opaque scrollbar to the right allows you to scroll up/down to see additional features.

You can also add white space above and/or below features tracks using sliders in the Layout section.

Click if you wish to return to the default values.
