Hello All,

I have one multiple sequence alignment in my manuscript. I made the colourful alignment using ClustalX on Mac 10.4.11

I was reading submission guidelines of the journal and they accept manuscript only in Arial, Courier and Times font. I don't know which font ClustalX has used in the output file. I can't figure it out either as illustrator doesn't allow me to select a letter singly. I am curious, if anyone knows which font it uses. If its other than said earlier, how do I change it?
OR
Is there any other program for Mac that I can use to get similar multiple sequence alignment and Arial as a font?

Many thanks for all help.

It's been a while since I have used this, but Jalview (http://www.jalview.org/) is a Java-based editor for multiple alignements in which you can choose colors and such (I don't know about fonts, but maybe you can try it out). I presume this also works for Mac. If you're happy with black/white, you can use the online tool BoxShade (http://www.ch.embnet...e/BOX_form.html).

Additionally, I don't think the journal font would apply to your alignment. I have published a Clustal alignment some years ago and didn't change anything to the font of the Clustal output, but if you can change it, it's always better to please the editor of course ...

Good luck!

If your alignment is saved as an image, rather than text output, the journal should take no issue. Images will be imported to their document editing software without fear of faulty text conversion.

Science is simply common sense at its best that is rigidly accurate in observation and merciless to fallacy in logic.

Thanks for the replies.

I used Jalview and sorted out my problem. It does have an option of choosing font.

BTW, I am submitting alignment as a pdf. I don't know how much it matters but I just hate article going back and forth for small issues.
