It used to be easy to download off a results page of a PSI-Blast from NCBI the PSSM (scorematrix). Now I cannot seem to find an asn file that is a scorematrix —Download>ASN.1 is the output of the search. Whereas before it was in "format results" IIRC. I was after this to check something in the PSSM viewer or do further cycles of PSI-Blast with different settings —the latter especially handy given that at present the exclude taxa checkbox is troublesome. Where is the option gone? enter image description here

Have you tried clicking on the "Back to Traditional Results Page" link in the top right corner? If you're expecting a different interface, that might help work out where to find the right information.
