    Adding sequence with "find"-button?
    Hello Wayne,
    me and my colleague did not change anything in the Options/Settings of ApE. Could the problem be connected to screen-sizes? On my colleague's laptop (running on Windows 10) the GUI of ApE 2.0.51 is sometimes larger than the screen (e.g. he cannot see the buttons in the lowest row of the Enzyme selector menu, even though he pushes the window to the top of his screen.) ApE 2.0.52 fits on his Screen.
    My desktop computer is running on Windows 8 and the 2.0.51-GUI looks nice and is easy to read. However, the 2.0.52-GUI is pretty tiny (even for my eyes).

    Problem working with locked files under Windows 10
    Hello Wayne,
    thanks for pointing me to the problem. Yes, the Enzyme Selector Fails with locked linear sequences. I tested it again with a linear and circular sequence. It also occurs under Windows 8, with both versions (2.0.51 and 2.0.52).

    Thanks for the bug report.
    That was not a known issue.
    Working on a fix that should come out in the next update.
    Send me an email if you want a patch file sooner.

    Which parts of the GUI are particularly small?
    Have you changed the font sizes in the preferences dialog (General options, at the top)?

    Thanks for the bug report.
    It actually only happens for linear sequences, I think.
    I think I have a fix. It'll come out in the next version update.

    Problem working with locked files under Windows 10
    Dear Wayne,
    I am not sure, whether this is related to my comment from yesterday. However, we found another issue:
    We trying to work with a locked file to prevent changes to the sequence like they occured in the post below. However, under Windows 10 both ApE 2.0.52 and 2.0.51 cannot Highlight selected enzymes in a locked file. The "Highlight" button of the Enzyme selector Triggers an error message "Sorry, the file is locked." This does not happen under Windows 8.
    Version 2.0.51 also produced the following log (see below), after the "Sorry,..." error message was confirmed.

    Adding sequence with "find"-button?
    Hello Wayne,
    we are experiencing a problem with ApE 2.0.52 under Windows 10:
    If we use the small find button (magnifying glass) in the upper part of the new programme GUI and copy/paste a sequence there, the same sequence is pasted into the actual plasmid sequence at the current cursor position.
    If the file is locked, we get an error message that the file cannot be modified.
    This does not happen, if we use the "Find"-dialogue from the Edit menu.
    Is this a known issue?

    Furthermore, under Windows 8 and 10 the new GUI has extremely small fonts. Is there any chance to change that?

    Best
