- Customizable menu systems with option to change color and style in the Preferences window. This menu system is a slightly modified version of a menu library written by Steve McMahon. All credit for the menu code goes to him.
- Copying a feature to the clipboard can now be done using the additional “as pLOT Format” option. Pasting the copied data to the pLOT View/Edit window inserts the sequence and the feature annotation information as well. Pasting the data to the New window likewise retains the feature annotation information.
- The mouse wheel is now recognized for zooming in or out. Using the mouse wheel while holding down the Control key changes the zoom. When zoomed in, using the mouse wheel will scroll the map up or down in the window.
- The Feature’s popup menu now includes “Move to the First” and “Move to Last” which will move the feature to the top or bottom of the drawing order.
Bug fixes in version 1.0.15i
- This update fixes a bug that could cause pLOT to retrieve feature names from .pl2 formatted files.
- A bug in the Zoom in code has been fixed and the map should now scale appropriately.
