Show a Protein Sequence in Compact Format

How do I show a protein sequence in compact format in Sequence view?

Click the Show/Hide "Compact Format" Button

In Sequence view, use the "Compact Format" button on the side toolbar to toggle display of a protein sequence in compact "text only" layout.

If the protein is annotated with features then the compact view text will be colored based on the feature color. Hover over a colored region to see details of the feature.

Compact format can show the sequence in 1-letter or 3-letter format.  Use the "Amino acid format" button on the side toolbar to switch between 1-letter and 3-letter format.
