[Chimera-users] Question re editing alignments

While the help notes for the alignment editor says that gaps can be 
created, I can't see how! Surely I'm missing something...

Selecting a residue or set of residues to create a region, then 
applying ctrl-left-arrow (or right arrow) yields an error complaining 
of a lack of gaps in the region ("No gap available in <seq name>"). 
This makes me think that regions can only be moved if they are 
already bounded by gaps. Which in turn leaves me stumped as how to 
create the initial gaps manually...!

What I had expected was for it to insert new gaps to the let of the 
region if applying ctrl-right-arrow to a region and vice versa for 
using ctrl-left-arrow.

I'm using 2.180 on Mac OS X 10.4.2
