When closing cutpoints it is annoying not to be able to see how far negative the score is.
If decimals are removed on negative scores, the score can have more meaning.

To view how "far negative" a score is, go to the toolbar at the bottom of the game window. Click on "General Options". A window will pop up. Make sure the choice "Show advanced GUI" has an X next to it.

This will change the display of the score from integers ranged zero ---> infinity to decimal numbers -999999.999 ---> infinity, in steps of 0.001.

After closing cutpoints, the score is often -999999.999. Using the Freeze tool, section off the two segments where the cut was, plus one segment on either side, and then local wiggle the four segments. You should soon see the score for the protein increase. Once the score has stabilized, unfreeze and global wiggle the protein, adjusting the Behavior slider accordingly.

I will look into making the negative cut scores more intuitive

I agree with timo - before you close the cut points it is very, very, very, useful to see what arrangements are working well before closing the cut points - the score (in advanced and selection) just shows 999etc.9etc regardless, ie your score does not appear to change.

Reset best in this state changes after making a few moves, and scripts will output scores to the Recipe output window before you close cut points.
