<TITLE>The Feature List</TITLE>
<PARA>
The feature list is bit at the bottom of the main window of &art; (see <XREF
LINKEND="MAINWINDOW-OVERVIEW">). <![ %artemis-only; [ The feature list can be
toggled on and off from the display menu (see <XREF
LINKEND="DISPLAYMENU-SHOW-FEATURE-LIST">). ]]> The same component is used by
the two items in the view menus that show a sub-set of components (see <XREF
LINKEND="VIEWMENU-SHOW-CDS-GENES-PRODUCTS"> and <XREF
LINKEND="VIEWMENU-FEATURE-FILTERS">). The list contains information about each
feature in each active entry (see <XREF LINKEND="CONCEPTS-ACTIVEENTRY">), one
per line.
</PARA>
<PARA>
The lines show this information about the feature: the colour (see <XREF
LINKEND="CONCEPTS-COLOUR">), the key, start base, end base, the note field (if
any) and then the remaining qualifiers in EMBL/GENBANK format. If the
correlation scores option is on then the scores will be shown just before the
note in each CDS line.

<SECT2 ID="FEATURELIST-SELECTION">
<TITLE>Changing the Selection from the Feature List</TITLE>
<PARA>
To select a feature from the list just click on it with the first mouse
button. This will unselect anything that is currently selected. To add a
feature to the selection rather than replacing the current selection, hold the
<LITERAL>shift</LITERAL> key while clicking. A single feature can be removed
from the selection in the same way, because shift-clicking acts as a toggle.
