Selection of a sequence region is synchronized between different Sequence View components.

     <br>

In the Zoom View a blue line with coordinates and the length of the selected region is shown:

     <img src="/wiki/download/attachments/20880218/Selecting Sequence Region_1.png"/>
     <br>
</center>

In the Details View a rectangle with a dashed border is shown around the selected region:

     <br>
</center>

Finally, when one selects an annotation in the Annotations Editor, the corresponding region is also selected in the other components and visa versa.

Selecting a region using the mouse

It is possible to select a region of a sequence using the mouse in each component of the Sequence View.

In the Zoom View and the Details View the selection can be adjusted by dragging its left or right border:

If the region coordinates are known, to select it click the Select sequence region button  on the toolbar, choose Select–>Sequence region in the context menu of the Sequence View. The Region Selection dialog appears:

     <br>
</center>

It is possible to choose:
