How do I change the line width in Sequence View?

Toggle the Fixed Width View

In Sequence view the sequence will automatically wrap to fit the width of the SnapGene window.

You can use the "Fixed Line Width" button in the side toolbar to display the sequence wrapped to a specific width, regardless of the width of the SnapGene window.

Change the Fixed Line Width Setting

The default "Fixed Line Width" is 100 bp. Click on the double headed arrow underneath the "Fixed Line Width" button to change the width. Use the dropdown arrow to choose from a selection of preset widths, or click on the current value to edit and enter a custom width.

Change the Default Fixed Line Width Value

To change the default Fixed Line Width value, click View → Map and Sequence Options → Sequence View.

Click on the menu arrow to choose between 30, 50, 75, 100, 150, 300, 500 or infinite (single line - unwrapped) presets, or click on the current value to edit and enter a custom width.
