How to Add Strains

You can easily add strains (i.e. backgrounds) to your records. One thing to note with Mouselines and Strains in SoftMouse is that you need to associate a Strain with a Mouseline in order for it to appear in your Strain drop down list.
Here's how to create strains:
  1. Go to your Mouseline List by clicking Mouselines in the blue menu header
  2. Click on the checkbox of any Mouseline in your click and click Edit Lines
  3. On the Edit page, click on the "Assign Background Strains" button directly under the Mouselines > Edit Mouseline Record header 
  4. Click on the Blue "Strain" title link to enter a new strain --- if the strain name is already a selectable option in the box, you can skip this step
  5. In the pop-up window, enter the strain name and click "add"
  6. Click on the green "save" button to continue --- you should now see the strain name as a selectable option in the box
  7. Select the checkbox of the strain added --- you can select multiple strains
  8. Finally, click on the green "Save" button to save your Strain-Mouseline association
Now when creating new mice or editing mice, when you select a Mouseline, the strain list will automatically populate to show you all strains that you have associated with this line.
