renumbering scenes in Storyline 2

Hello,

Basic question, but it's bugging me that when I view in STORYVIEW, the scenes I have inserted are not lined up in the correct order. And some of them have the wrong numbers on them.

Questions:

1  How can I renumber scenes?

2  How can I move scenes around so that they are visually in sequence on the storyboard?

 

Thanks a lot,

Lynn

I can't wait to hear this answer.  I have been creating extra scenes and moving things over to get them in the order I want.  Doing the same with dragging and dropping slides to get the numbers in order when I add a slide in the middle - mostly with branching.  Or I have to manually move in the menu list and not refresh unless I want to start again.  Hope there is a solution.

Yes I was. It was just a screen capture showing the layout of a webcast. Scene #1 is at the top and then the following 7 scenes are lined up horizontally below from #8 to #2, left to right. I am trying to rearrange so that the numbers (and content) read sequentially from left to right.

Been there, if it is REALLY important to you... quickest solution type I use - create 7 new scenes - select all the slides per current scene and drag and drop them into the new scenes in the desired order - (hint - usually I can not get all the slides to go over all at once - so you may have to take a bunch at a time)  Once you have all the slides over - then delete the old 7 empty scenes and Viola - in order.  NOW HERE IS THE CATCH - check all "Next" triggers - if you had branching or any manually chosen slide numbers - many will revert back to "Next slide" so branching is off.

For future projects... I am very diligent about creating blank slides as placeholders for each scene needed as a first step so not to go through that mess again.  Now when a client adds a slide in the middle (I have loads of branching within scenes besides between scenes) - I do take the time to drag and drop all following numbered slides into place again to get that renumbering in order - otherwise you are manually adjusting the menu.  Fun times.  But I know no other solution.  Good Luck Cynthia
