Scale above does not exclude gaps


I have been using Jalview to prepare sequence alignment for publications. One feature that will be very helpful is: do not include gaps while showing the scale above. Is it doable with current version? Many thank for your help!


Hi Zhen

The ruler can be numbered according to position of one of the sequences if you open the sequence ID, and from that sequence ID’s submenu select ‘Mark as reference’.

See the help docs

Hi Jim,
