Hi all,

I am still having troubles with Text display in the Sequence Graphics display.

Hamis McWilliam suggested I do the following:

I did this ... and it works ... but, for me, only in part, to wit:

1. only the Visible information from the *.cds Subsequence objects is
displayed !?!
2. Visible information from other Subsequence objects and from the Sequence
   itself is not displayed.

Second, this displayed text information appears to be of a 'Text Features' type
... that is, it is removed from the Seq Graphics display when one toggles the
'Text Features' in 'Columns'

Perhaps the additional text information should be displayed in the column
called 'Brief Identifications' ??
I have not been able to get this column to display anything ...
If this is what I should be using, how does one use it?
Does it involve an additional Method to the 'Show_Text' method above?
If so, what is the Method?

I appreciate any comments here ...
