8.2.1 Manual creation of annotations

To create an annotation on your sequence or alignment, select the region of the sequence where you wish to place the annotation and click the Add Annotation button. In the Add Annotation dialog enter an annotation name and select a existing type or type a new one. If you wish to put the annotation on a track rather than directly on the sequence, either choose an existing track from the drop-down menu, or type in a new track. Expand the Properties section to enter additional properties for that annotation. In the Interval section you can adjust the position of the annotation, add an additional interval, or mark the annotation as truncated at the 5‘ or 3‘ end.
