Tim, Thank you for confirming that sequence files can't be read directly.
Is there a common or frequently-used way of creating a template from a sequence file *without* launching DnaPlotter? I'd like the user's first view to be the circular plot.

You can manually create a template or export a template out from a DNAPlotter session. Example templates can be found in the online manual page: http://www.sanger.ac.uk/resources/software/dnaplotter/#t_3 The template then restores the track information that gets saved to the template.
