Cannot fill in Protein Description field in 'Edit>Insert>Peptides'

Cannot fill in Protein Description field in 'Edit>Insert>Peptides' shaoen  2020-09-09


I would like to fill all three fields (peptide sequence, protein name, protein description) when adding a list of peptides but it seems I can't enter anything in the protein description field. Data in the first two columns work fine. What am I missing?

This does appear to be broken, thanks for reporting it. I'll investigate and fix ASAP.

Thanks for using the Skyline support board,

OK, it's not broken - or rather, it's always worked this way: that's a read-only field that gets populated when the protein name matches a protein in your background proteome. So I'm guessing you just need to set up a background proteome.
