Default Viewing vcf and bam files in artemis

Dear All, I'm new to Artemis and could do with some help viewing vcf files.

1) First I loaded my embl reference file
2) Then I index my vcf files with tabix as per the manual
3) Then I go to File > Read BAM/VCF
4) Find the file and select it (but nothing seems to happen in the viewer)

When I click on Display > VCF also nothing happens

I've even tried using bcftools to index the bcf files and upload them but that doesn't work either.

What am I doing wrong? I should be able to load various vcf files?

I'd be really grateful for some guidance on this. Many thanks.

you need to zip your VCF file first and then index
bgzip file.vcf
tabix file.vcf.gz

Hi there, I am having a similar problem with my BAM files.

I have some transcriptome data in BAM format (alongside the BAM sorted and sorted.bai index files made with SAM tools).

When i read the BAM file nothing happens on my screen.
