The character editor provides tools for viewing a project's characters by matrix. Editing of character and state names and descriptions can take place directly in the list, allowing for fast editing of basic character information.
To view the character list click on the
tab in the project tool tab bar. The matrix drop-down menu in the upper-left
hand corner of the tab provides a means to select which matrix characters are
displayed from, when your project has more than one matrix.
The characters will be ordered as they are in the matrix itself. This order is by, default, the order in which the characters were created. If the characters were imported from a NEXUS file then the order will match that of the file. Project members may make arbitrary changes to character order in the matrix editor or using the "move" tools described in the section called “Moving characters”.
