Software for pretty formatting of sequences?

I am looking for a program for pretty formatting of sequences (not

I have several raw sequence data files and they are nothing but
letters, of course. That way they look pretty dull and it is very hard
to find any orientation from such a sequence when printed on paper.
Therefore, the program I am looking for should:
* be able to perform automatic sequence blocking with selectable
numbers of characters and columns
* be able to put position numbers to the left and/or to the right of
each sequence line
* perhaps allow formatting of personally selected regions within the
sequence (however, this is not really necessary since I can also do
that in any word processor as long as the formatted sequence can be
exported in text format)

I tried this with GeneDoc (which is actually used for alignments,
thought I'd give it a try anyway) but couldn't get any satisfactory
results. Maybe I just did not use it right. Is all of the above
possible with GeneDoc?
If not, can anyone recommend me a program for the above purpose?
