How do I control the order of slides Next/Previous in story view?

I've got some slides and they have made their own order in story view and then the Next/Previous seems

to follow the Story View order.  How do I switch the order of how they display in story view so that they

go in the order I want them not the way Storyline has ordered them?  (So that the Next/Previous will work right

and it will look like the order I think they should be).

Hi Ted,

If I'm understanding correctly, you can drag your slides to the correct position(s).

In the screen shot below, Slide 2 was below Slide 3. So I needed to drag Slide 2 into the correct position.

The screen shot shows "mid-process" dragging slide 2 up, so it's before Slide 3. Storyline displays a turquoise arrow to show where the slide will be dropped.

If you look closely at the screen shot, you'll see that, since the Screen Shot was taken mid-process moving Slide 2, it's still labeled 1.3 Slide 2 and Slide 3 is still labeled 1.2 Slide 3. When I released the mouse button, the slides were then relabeled: 1.2 Slide 2 and 1.3 Slide 3.

Please shout out with any questions.

That video was very helpful.  It's really handy to look over someone's shoulder

and see how they do things that might be different from how I do it and then

I learned some new tricks both answering my question and helping me to

keep more organized in Story view in the future.  Thanks!  All set.
