Pairwise identity from multiple alignment with DISTANCES

I previously used DISTANCES with parameter set to 1.5 to calculate 
pairwise identities between sequences in a multiple alignment. In the
new GCG version now  installed at our site, this possibility has (as far as I
can tell) disappeared (choice between uncorrected, Jukes-Cantor and 
Kimura distances), and the output is the number of substitutions per
100 nucleotides. 
Can I still use GCG to do pairwise identities from a MSF alignment in 
this version of the program?
Thanks for any suggestions
