How can I edit common features?

Choose the Common Features List

To open the Browse Common Features dialog, click Features → Browse Common Features. Choose the desired common features list (Standard, Custom or Favorites) from the menu.

Select the Feature

Click the feature name, then click Edit... .

Edit the Feature

Edit the feature details, then click OK.

Edit the Feature Translation Options

To allow the detection of a translated feature regardless of the codons used, check the Detect either an exact protein match or an approximate DNA match check box.

When searching for "Common features" on a target sequence, SnapGene will first try to find an exact "protein match" for translated features in the Common Features database.

If "protein match"  fails then SnapGene tries a DNA search using the DNA match threshold - see Detect Common Features.

Edit Multiple Common Features

To simultaneously edit multiple features' color or type, select the features in the list box, click Features → Edit [Custom/Standard] Features, make the appropriate changes then click OK.
