Print Agarose Gel images with black bands on a white background

The new simulated agarose gel function in MacVector 14.5 creates photorealistic agarose gels that look just like the real thing. However, if you want to print a record of a gel on a laser printer, the standard white bands on a grey background are not always ideal, if for no other reason than it uses a lot of toner! One great way around this is to simply view the gel in “Black on White” mode. You can adjust this by clicking on the Prefs button on the Gel window toolbar.

With the Gel Color Mode set to Black on White the image becomes inverted and you can print to a laser printer so you have a permanent record of the Gel without wasting toner.
