Christoph Gartmann reply a possible solution:

 Here is another solution: You may write your own enzyme.dat file.
 For example, if you write a file enz.dat like:

 ApaI    5  G_GGCC'C  -4 
 EcoRI   1  G'AATT_C   4
 EcoRV   3  GAT'ATC    0

 And run MAP

 GCG will read  your enz.dat file, and when you select "*"(all enzyme),
 there shall be only 3 enzymes selected.
 Hope it will help.
