Adobe will stop the Adobe Story CC service on January 22, 2019. Adobe Story CC, Adobe Story CC (Classic), and Adobe Story CC desktop application will be discontinued. See End of service FAQ for more information.

You can customize how revision indicators are displayed on revised pages.

  1. Select Production > Manage Revisions.

    Production revisions
    Production revisions

  2. In Viewing Options, customize the display options according to your requirements:

Show Markup For

Select All or Active depending on whether you want markup displayed for all revisions or just the active (current) revision. Select None if you do not want markup displayed for revisions.

Mark Position

The mark you set in Revision Style is, by default, displayed to the right of revised text. You can choose to change the distance, from the left margin, at which the mark is displayed. To display the mark to the left of the revised text, enter a lesser number such as 0.5 or 1.

Lock/unlock production revisions

Locking pages in production revisions helps you:

  • Prevent page renumbering because of deletions or content overflows during revisioning
  • Identify and print only the revised pages

Lock pages

When you lock pages in your script during revision, a page, with the numbering format nA, is created to accommodate content overflow. n corresponds to the number of the page causing the content overflow.

For example, after locking, you edited page number 2 to an extent that it caused content overflow. Instead of the content moving to page 3, a page 2A is created to accommodate the overflow. Thereafter, pages created are numbered 2B, 2C, and so on.

  1. Select Production > Lock Pages.

Unlock production revisions

When you unlock pages, the numbering of pages is reset to the natural numbering sequence of the script (1, 2, 3...).

  • To unlock pages, select Production > Unlock Pages.

Lock/unlock scene numbers

Locking scene numbers prevents renumbering of existing scenes when scenes are added during production revisions.

Similar to production revisions, Adobe Story uses a different numbering format, usually alphanumeric, when renumbering scenes. The format used depends on the numbering format of the scenes that precede and follow the scene.

For example, during production, you lock scenes and introduce a scene between scene numbers 100 and 101. The new scene is assigned the scene number 100A.

Lock scene numbers

  1. Select Production > Manage Scene Numbers.

  2. In the Manage Scene Numbers dialog, select Keep Existing Scene Number. Selecting this option locks all current scene numbers in your script.

    Note:

    Ensure that you have enabled Automatically Assign Number To Scenes.

  3. Add a scene to your script. Notice the numbering format for the scene number.

Unlock scene numbers

When you unlock scene numbers, all the scene numbers are reset to match the original numbering sequence.

  1. Select Production > Manage Scene Numbers.

  2. In the Manage Scene Numbers dialog, deselect Keep Existing Scene Number.

View contents of an omitted scene

Perform one of the following steps:

  • Click the omitted scene in the Outline panel.
  • In the script, move your mouse over the word OMITTED.
