Are you having trouble with the Right-click to change the reference sequence for the dot-conservation view because of the context menu feature? You can now use Ctrl+Right Click to change the dot-conservation referene sequence.
Notes for 64-bit OS users:
For Windows 7 or 8, 64-bit users of readSeq (automated conversion from file formats such as nexus for import or export into and out of BioEdit), the version of readSeq originally created by Don Gilbert that is packaged with BioEdit will not run in 64-bit Windows. A 64-bit-compatible port has been created by Mathew D. Pagel and is packaged with BioEdit in its original distribution package "ReadSeqv202.zip" with a small block of text added to the top of the original "Instructions.txt" file included in the zip file distribution. The original disribution can be found here. To install the 64-bit-compatible version of readSeq, unzip ReadSeqv202.zip and follow the instructions in the file "Instructions.txt".
For Windows 7 or 8, 64-bit users of TreeView, the version of
TreeView distributed with BioEdit will not work
correctly. Rod Page offers an updated version (TreeViewX)
that does work well on this platform. To install this
version such that it works with pre-configured Phylip
accessory apps within BioEdit, it is best to override the
default installation directory when installing TreeViewX
to C:\Program Files\Rod Page\TreeView. You can then
either 1.) Change the name of the file C:\Program
Files\Rod Page\TreeView\tv.exe to C:\Program Files\Rod
Page\TreeView\treev32.exe or 2.) modify accessory
application configurations to point to C:\Program
Note for non-U.S. users of Windows 7:
The pairwise alignment function was fixed and verified in
this version of BioEdit and now agrees with examples shown
in the help system.
