Move & Rearrange Scenes

Need to quickly and easily change the order of scenes without having to cut and paste content? The Cards widget and Mode allow you to do just that by dragging and dropping cards. For example, you can quickly and easily move the fourth scene in your script to precede the second scene in your script. This flexibility makes revising your script and tweaking your story structure much simpler.

Move & Rearrange Scenes

In Cards View/widget, each card is a scene. For example, the 1st Card = Scene 1 and the 2nd Card = Scene 2, and so forth. You can turn on scene numbering through Customize > Page.

  1. Go to Cards View or open the Cards widget
  2. Click and hold the card (scene) you would like to move
  3. Drag the card (scene) into the desired location.
    1. The cards will shift to make room for the moving card
  4. Drop the card (scene) in the desired location.
    1. The scene will move to its new location in the script, which you can see in Page view
