You can organize your script using two special types of cues, Sections and Comments.

To make the script easier to view, you can add a group of cues to a Section cue, then collapse the section.


Inserting section cues


Use a Section cue to group cues and to make viewing long scripts easier. You can expand and collapse the sections as needed.

To create a section, follow these steps:

  1. Highlight the cue above where you want the section to appear.
  2. On the Home tab, click Insert Elements > Section.
  3. Click the arrow to the left of the Section cue to expand and collapse the section.


    Caution: Any cues inserted under an expanded Section cue will be added to the section.

  4. Drag one or more cues below the Section cue. Once cues are added to the section, they will indent slightly to the right.


Cues in a section are indented for easy identification.

To change the background color of Section cues, see Script Settings.

You can rename a Section cue. Click the arrow button on the right side of the title bar, enter text, then click the arrow again. Using descriptive labels for your Section cues will help you identify what is contained inside the section when it is collapsed.


Deleting sections



WARNING: Deleting a Section cue will delete all cues contained within the section. Drag any cues you want to keep out of the section before deleting the Section cue.


To delete a section, right-click the Section cue then click Delete.
