Sequence Sheet find by name

  • I can easily have 50-150 sequence sheets. Is there any kind of search/filter function/cmd/macro that I can quickly find a sequence sheet by name?


    For now I'm clustering sequence sheets in alpha order with spaces in between (IE all the A's together with 4 or 5 empty spaces, all the B's, etc).

  • List Sequence "name"


    Then look at your command line history. Can also use asterisk '*' as a wild-card, e.g. List Sequence "na*" (would list all sequences that started with the letters 'na')

  • Thanks! That will be somewhat helpful. Not exactly an intelligent search. For example, if I type in


    List Sequence "*you*"


    it will find all sequences that contains "you", "your", etc... however, it will not list the sequence if it STARTS with "you"


    Not really a problem on my end but I just thought I'd point that out.

  • I think he wants a general search term to find all cases, Beginning, Middle and End.

    So in Regex you would have to enter .* but this would find anything with the word you
