Using the Story Editor

The Story Editor is where you create your story.

Figure. Story Editor showing the pop-up menu for choosing the story to edit and the story's source and entry lists.

The Story Editor contains two areas:

As you drag markers from the source list to the entry list, you add story entries. Each entry shows the source marker’s name and the running time of the story, based on the duration of that marker and all markers ahead of it. A number is added to the end of the source marker’s name if the marker appears more than once in the entry list.

To delete a marker from the entry list
  • Select the entry, then press the Delete key.

The entry is removed from the entry list.

To change an entry in the entry list
  • Control-click the entry, choose Change Chapter from the shortcut menu, then choose the marker you want to replace the entry with from the submenu.

You can also change a story entry’s source marker in the entry’s Story Inspector.

To change the order of the entry list
  • Drag an entry to a new position.

The order of the entries in the entry list controls how the story plays. This makes it easy to rearrange the order if you inadvertently mix up a couple of markers.
