Feature labels (titles) out of visible screen

vstrelet

Hi,

 

Our users noticed inconvenient problem with

GBrowse2: for long features (or on detailed

zoom levels) feature labels/titles are out

of the visible screen.

 

So labels are properly placed above left

end of the feature, but on the standard GB2

start, for a long features label sits

not on the visible screen, but couple of

screens to the left - because glyph spans

central "starting screen" plus couple of

initially invisible screens which are used

for "smooth scrolling". Same happens on fine

zoom levels, when typical gene span starts

to cover size of these five screens - and then

you see gene symbol only after scrolling to

the leftmost screen out of available five.

 

Is there any solution to that problem?

Having symbol/name in a popup is not a

solution as requires mouse pointing which

is very different from std area overview

at one glance..

 

Thanks in advance for any comments,

There's no solution right now, but with a little effort I can make the title float over the glyph so that it never goes off-screen. Perhaps this can get into one of the fall releases; right now the priority is stability and performance.

Thanks for pointing out the problem.
