MacVectorTip: How to Toggle Between Single-Letter and Three-Letter Amino Acid Translation Code

Many views in MacVector display amino acid translations above or below DNA sequences. Typically, these are from CDS features, but can also be the 3/6 frame translation of a sequence. You can display the amino acids as either the single-letter code, or as the three-letter code. You can toggle the setting using the MacVector | Preferences -> Text View pane.

Changes are reflected in many different windows. Here are a few examples.
