Software Question: Scene Construction

Postby Geoff1975 » Nov 02, 2012 6:58 am

This time I have a software question. Using the scene construction tool in Storyguide, I thought the lower field, the "Story Points reference" was a nice way to add layers of the throughlines into a single scene, which would be described in the upper field. The scene summary typed into the upper field remained saved, but when I'd type something into any of the Story Points in the lower field they would vanish. They didn't seem to be saving. Is this lower field only for seeing what you've typed into another report somewhere else? Is there a way to save distinct throughline elements into that scene without using the whole summary field? For what it's worth, I'm using the Mac version of Story Expert version 5.

Yes, the lower part of the scene window in the StoryGuide is for display only.
