|To choose how to link multi-segment features||Make a selection from the Linkage drop-down menu. Choices are Solid, Dashed and None.|
|To change the position of a feature label||A feature’s label is the topmost note as seen in the Features view. If you are working with a multi-segment feature, Inside will display segment names inside each segment box, while Above and Below will instead display only the corresponding feature name above or below the segment box.|
|To include a label inside or adjacent to the feature in the Circular view||Check Label Attached and use the Label Position drop-down menu to specify the location. For instance, you may wish to move a long feature name above or below the feature shape. If the Label Attached box is unchecked, the label appears outside the circular map with a line connecting it to the feature.|

Choices include the Selected Item, All Features, All Enzymes, the Sequence, a Circular (Map) Title, or the Ruler. To select a different font color, click on the colored box to open the color chooser. The current font name is shown as a button. Click on the button to open a dialog where you can change the font, font style or size. Alternatively, the font size can be changed within the Style panel by typing a new font size into the text box or using the up/down arrows.
Note: To increase/decrease the font for a single selected feature, choose Format > Size > Larger or Smaller.
