Sequence display

A sequence display is associated with a single set of results ( see section Result manager). To invoke a sequence display, bring up a pop up menu for the required result, either from the Results manager, the Results menu in the sip plot or the coloured square icon on the right of the sip plot. From the menu, select the "Display sequences" option.

The horizontal sequence is drawn above the vertical sequence. In the picture above, "hsproperd" is the horizontal sequence and "mmproper" is the vertical sequence. The central panel indicates characters which are identical between the horizontal and vertical sequences. The buttons to the left of the sequences allow scrolling of the sequences either 1 character at a time (< or >) or a screen width (<< or >>). Pressing the Lock button "locks" the two sequences together and they can be scrolled as one. Movement of the sequences is also controlled by the scrollbars or by moving the corresponding cursor in the sip plot ( see section Sip plot). The black cursors in the sequence display correspond to the position of the cursor in the sip plot. The sequences can be made to 'jump' to the nearest match of that result by pressing the "Nearest match" button.
