Scene re-arrangement

Apr 05, 2016

Hi Hero's - I've created my Storyline and through development have moved some scenes around. So not scene 2 comes later. When the player shows the menu it now doesn't look right. Is there a way to correct this?

Bear in mind that the flow of your program is controlled by the triggers, not by StoryView, and that the menu is connected to the true flow only at the instant you click the button Wendy recommended.

Although Storyview drives our OCD friendsĀ  to the brink of despair, remember: WHAT YOU SEE IN STORYVIEW IS IN NO WAY RELATED TO PROGRAM FLOW DETERMINATION. It is merely a visual representation of how the triggers are set up.

There is VERY little about program flow that you can change from StoryView. If you have a trigger that jumps to the next slide, you can identify which slide is next by dragging it. Otherwise, almost anything you do in StoryView to change program flow is wasted effort and can be VERY frustrating.

As Wendy suggested, you can change the position of scenes if that makes it easier for you to work, but it has no bearing on how the user travels through the course.

If you want to change program flow, find and change the triggers that control it.

Thanks Walt, understood - it's too bad that you can't alter the numbering in the menu without moving slides around in scenes - lesson learned, plan out the scenes before developing. :)
