No. Only If you upgrade to the paid version ‘Snap Gene’.

Snap Gene Viewer is the base level for the paid Snap Gene molecular cloning software. Sequence features can be automatically annotated within the program to identify features such as primer locations, restriction sites, ORF’s and ligation sites. Cloning processes have also been simulated with support for techniques such as Gibson assembly and Gateway cloning.
Snap Gene Viewer is free however they have multiple plans if you would like to upgrade to the premium Snap Gene program, starting at $345 for academics or $1,245 for commercial use.
Snap Gene Viewer is simple to use and displays the data in a somewhat unusual and colorful manner where the entire peak is colored rather than just the outline. The simplicity of the program is a real winning point with this viewer.
