Specify display (viewing) options for revisions

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

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

  1. Select Production > Manage 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.

    Show Date in Script Header and Footer

    Disable this option if you do not want to display the date specified in the revision style.

    Align

    Select an alignment for the content in the header and footer.

View revision history

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

Adobe Story automatically adds revision history to the title page of the document. Edit the revision history according to your requirements.

Note:

Deleting the title page deletes revision history permanently. Revisions made previous to the creation of the title page are not captured in the title page.

Identify total number of revised pages

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

The number of pages in the current revision is displayed in the Adobe Story status bar.

  1. Select Production > Manage Revisions.

  2. In Viewing Options, select All, and click Done.

The total number of revised pages is displayed in the following places:

  • In the Adobe Story status bar towards the left (when the revision is active)

  • In the Print dialog box

Lock/unlock production revisions

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

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

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

When you lock pages in your script during revision, a new 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 new page 2A is created to accommodate the overflow. Thereafter, new pages created are numbered 2B, 2C, and so on.

  1. Select Production > Lock Pages.

    Ensure that you have enabled page headers if you want to see the new page numbers displayed in the script.

Note:

In a locked page, when a scene with content that overflows to the next page is omitted, a page range is displayed for page numbers.

Unlock production revisions

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

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

  1. To unlock pages, select Production > Unlock Pages.

Lock/unlock scene numbers

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

Locking scene numbers prevents renumbering of existing scenes when new 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 new scene.

For example, during production, you lock scenes and introduce a new 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 New Scenes.

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

Unlock scene numbers

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

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.

Omit/unomit scenes

Omitting a scene helps you remove a scene without changing the scene numbers of other scenes. When you omit a scene, the word OMITTED appears at the location of the omitted scene. You can later, if necessary, unomit a scene to recover omitted content.

The element type for an omitted scene is always set to General and cannot be changed.

  • To omit scenes, place your cursor on the scene, and select Production > Omit Scene.

  • To unomit scenes, place your cursor on the omitted scene, and select Production > Unomit Scene.

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.

Omitting scenes when track changes is enabled

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

  • Ensure that you accept/reject all tracked changes in the scene before you omit a scene. If you try to omit a scene with track changes, a dialog appears informing you that all tracked changes will be accepted before omitting the scene. Click No if you want to manually accept or reject changes.

  • Omitting/unomitting scenes are not tracked as changes.
