Numbering the order of scenes & publishing to Word

Two fold question about scene numbering:

  1. Renumber scenes?
    Is there a way to renumber scenes logically? After several iterations I have a file that sequences from scene 1 to scene 7 to scene 3 .... you get the drift.  How do I renumber the scenes to a logical number sequence?  (other than creating a new SL file and copying scenes and updating triggers)
  2. Output order to Word
    The client wants to receive a hard copy every day, to verify changes. Publishing to Word outputs the scenes in numerical order, not in the arranged order of scenes/topics.  Is there a manifest to get publishing in Word to follow the true arrangement of the course?

Hi Jerrie,

I thought I'd start by sharing the information here on how Storyline determines scene numbering. In regards to renaming or ordering them, you could do so within the player menu either manually or using the "reset from story" button. 

There is not a way to change the order in which they slides appear within the publish to word, although renumbering them would accomplish this as well.

Hi Ashley.
I'm always pleased to get your responses. :)
Numbering the menu items did not change the published Word document. I'll work around it - it's not a show stopper, just a nuisance.
