Hi David.

Is this possible?

Technically… yes. You can change the displayed title for the current alignment window by executing this script via the Groovy Console (or Calculate->Run Groovy Script menu option):

jalview.bin.Jalview.currentAlignFrame.setTitle(“My Alignment”)

However, there isn’t any user-friendly way to do this. We have a rather dusty issue on this precise topic that has not yet been addressed here:

I’m hoping we can begin to schedule some of these ‘not quite highest priority’ usability issues next year, when we have got a full release of JalviewJS out of the door. Alignment window renaming will be useful for many people !
