The following table lists ways in which you can customize the appearance and layout of views.
|Show a view||Use View > (View Name) > (chromosome or contig number) > Show. The third item in the command at left may or may not appear. Example: to see the Analysis view for Chromosome 12, choose View > Alignment > 12 > Show.|
|Resize a track in a view|| In the Analysis view or Overview, hover your mouse over the bottom middle of a track to enable a slider. Grab the slider and pull to reveal more or less of that track.
|Add white space around a track in a view||To add white space around a track in the Analysis view or Overview, select the track name in the Tracks panel, then use the sliders in the Layout section.|
|Change the style (fonts, colors, calculation metrics and more)||Use the Style panel and its subsections. Customization for font style and size applies to all text in a view. Individual rows cannot have different styles.|
|Move one or more contig rows as a group||In the Overview, you can rearrange contigs one at a time or as contiguous groups using drag and drop. First, select the desired rows using Ctrl/Cmd+click or Shift+click. Next, drag the selected row(s) to the desired location and release the mouse button.|
|Detach a view||Only certain views can be detached. To do this, right-click on the view tab and choose Detach (View Name). Alternatively, use View > (View Name) > (chromosome or contig number) > Detach. Detaching a view turns it into a free-floating window.|
|Reattach all detached views to their original locations||Use View > Reattach All Views.|
|Show the active view in full-screen mode||Use the View > Full Screen command or the the Full screen tool at the bottom right corner of the view.|
|Exit from full-screen mode||Click the Esc key, use the Exit Full Screen tool () at the bottom of the full-screen view, or press Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+F.|
|Configure the number and location of visible views.|| Use the View > Document Layout command or the Change layout tool (image varies) in the bottom right corner of the view to access possible layouts. The following options are available:
|Zoom in or out on a view|| Both the Overview and Analysis view have independent vertical and horizontal zoom sliders. Grab any green slider with your mouse and drag left/right or up/down to zoom in or out in the view.
|Split a view vertically||Drag the vertical splitter tool (), found at the right edge of the view, in a leftward direction. Splits are ignored when exporting an image, although the layout is preserved. To remove a split, drag the divider as far as you can to the right of the view and drop it there.|
|To view two or more sessions simultaneously on a split screen||By default, only one session at a time is displayed, even if several sessions are open. To view two or more sessions simultaneously on a split screen, drag a session tab in a downward, right or left direction. When you see a black arrow, release the mouse button. Sessions can be re-docked in their original positions by reversing this process.|
|Return to the default window display||Choose View > Reset Panel Layout.|
