Cursor Mode

Cursor mode is a new feature in Jalview 2.08, and allows more precise selection and editing of alignments through the use of the keyboard for both navigation and the input of editing and selection commands.

F2 Toggles between normal and cursor editing modes. When in cursor mode, a black cursor appears in the residue area of the alignment, and any mouse clicks on that area will move the cursor to that position (this means that the region selection menu is unavailable in cursor mode).

Some keyboard operations are not available in keyboard mode. See the full list of keystrokes.
