I use bioedit (which is not maintained anymore), but only to compare short sequences (a few kb max). I usually align them manually but you can also use the clustalW plugin that is provided in "accessory application"

I usually copy paste my sequences as new sequences ("sequence"->"new sequence") and give each of them a name that will then appear on the left pannel. You can select multiple sequences by pressing the "shift" or the "control" key while selecting their names in the left pannel.
Shift key -> everything in between your 1st and last selection is selected.
Ctrl key -> only the items you select are selected.

I hope this is helpful.

good luck
