The Multiple Sequence Viewer is a great tool, but what I'm missing is reporting of % identity and % positives (as in Prime) when doing a multiple sequence alignment on imported sequences. Is there a way to see this information?

In the MSV Settings menu there are two options: "Display Percentage Identity" and "Display Percentage Similarity". These commands will display identity and similarity in a column on the right side, calculated with respect to a query (or reference) sequence. The reference sequence can be set by right-clicking on a sequence name and choosing "Set as Reference".
