Register Single Feature

Once you're there, you can start to "Register" your first features by clicking Register Features. Registering a feature is just a nice way to say, hey, this feature annotation is important and canonical and can/should be identified in other sequences.

Click Register Features again, but this time click the third tab in the dialog:

After hitting submit, you should see those 2 new features in your library:
