Hi Debbie!

I found some information in another thread that might help with this:

Hi Rich,

Have a look at this thread, which should explain, (See Dave Anderson's Screenr).

Dragging and dropping slides does re-number the slides within a scene.  But dragging scenes around will NOT re-number scenes.  Refer to David's Screenr for a nice work around.

Im Having the same problem- Its not the Scenes i need to re-number , its the slides. Thye are in the right order in storyline view, and lablelled and flow as i've detailed but the numbers are NOT in order (I imported a powerpoint into a storyline template and hence needed to move them around a bit). How do I renumber the slide so when its publised to word for review it is in the correct sequence

Hi Dave,

Did you review the screenr here by David Anderson about how slides are numbered in Storyline? If you'd like the numbers to not appear within the menu in Storyline, to change a scene title or slide title on the menu, double-click a title and enter a new name.  Then press Enter on your keyboard.

I have the same problem. I want to re-number the slides. They are arranged in the right order, but their numbers are not in order. When I preview, the slides are shown in the numbered order, not in the order I chose....

I renamed the slides as Asley said...

I've seen the Dave Anderson's Screenr, but I only have one scene, so it won't help me...

More than that, I put triggers:

- on slide 1.3. - I have a trigger to jump to slide 1.6

- on slide 1.6. - trigger to jump to slide 1.11

- on slide 1.11 - trigger to jump to slide 1.4   and so on

And still.... it jumps from slide 1.3. to 1.4...... !!!!           I don't get it    :( 

What else can I do?

Based on what I can find, there is no actual way to change the automatic slide numbering as requested by the OP. But has anyone found a better workaround than creating new slides and copying and pasting slide contents onto those slides so they are in the correct order?

  • Like the OP, I'm not looking for David Anderson's Screenr for Scenes, I'm looking for the individual slide title numbering workaround if one exists.
  • Also not looking to renumber the menu.
  • And I understand the slide numbers are irrelevant for the learner but we need them for review purposes.
