Display area of isotope peaks in document grid

Display area of isotope peaks in document grid karin preindl  2023-08-09 05:58

Dear Skyline support team,
Is there a possibility to display the isotope peak areas (number defined in the transition settings) in the document grid or do i have to create a seperate molecule for each isotope peak?
Thank you and best regards,

pS: i'm using the molecule interface

Are you using regular Skyline version 22.2 or Skyline-daily?

In Skyline 22.2, there is a report called "Transition Results" which will have one row for each transition and each replicate. The "Fragment Ion" column in the report will tell you which transition the row is for. Skyline considers each of the different precursor isotopes to be a different transition, so the "Fragment Ion" values will be "precursor" for the monoisotopic precursor, and "precursor [M+1]" for the M+1 isotope, etc.

In Skyline-daily, the "Transition Results" report is hidden when you are in small molecules mode.
If you want to be able to use the Transition Results report you could do the following:
1. Use the "View > User Interface > Mixed" menu item to switch to Mixed mode.
2. Choose "Manage Reports" from the "Reports" dropdown at the top of the Document Grid.
3. Use the mode selector dropdown in the top right corner of the Customize Report dialog to change the mode of the report to "Mixed".
After you do that, the Transition Results report will be available in all of Skyline's user interface modes.
Also, the captions of the columns in the Transition Results report will change so that they say "Molecule" instead of "Peptide".

Does this answer your question?

If this does not answer your question then I might have misunderstood what you are asking. If that's the case you should send us your Skyline document.
In Skyline you can use the menu item:
File > Share
to create a .zip file containing your Skyline document and supporting files including extracted chromatograms.

If that .zip file is less than 50MB you can attach it to this support request. You can upload larger files here:

Hi Nick,
Thank you for your reply. I think you understood my question right but i don't find the "Transition Results"- neither in the document grid nor in the results grid. I attached some screenshots and the skyline document.

Hi Nick,
I played around and managed to create a customized report with your infos. Thank you again- i would have not thought about looking for product/fragment ions. Altough i type more than 2 peaks into the Full Scan transition settings it will only show to isotope peaks.
But one additional question- it seems that its only possible to show max 2 isotopes (M+1 and M+2).
Best, Karin
