Hi Jason,

Your question is beyond me. Perhaps it'll be more comprehensively

> Hello there,
> I was wondering if someone there might be able to quickly answer a couple of questions that I have about AceDB.  I recently installed version 4.9u, and I would like to customize it a bit.  
> 1) From the main window when I type in a cosmid name and then double-click Sequence, it opens up a window for me where I can select the columns that I wish to view.  Can I make it default to only the columns that I'm insterested in, by editing the config files in some way?  I spent some time trying to figure out how, but didn't have any luck.  The columns that I'm interested in seeing are DNA Sequence, -curated, curated, scale, Deletion_allele, and Alleles.
> 2) I really dislike the default colour that highlights selected DNA sequence (I'm told it's a 'peach' kind of colour).  It doesn't stand out very well.  Is there a way to change this default colour to some other colour?
> Thanks for your help.  I figured you might be a good place to look for help, since I'm sure there are a lot of you that know AceDB inside and out.
