When you assign dialogue numbers, numbers are sequentially assigned to the dialogue elements in a script. You can choose to reset the dialogue numbering in two ways:
- Reset numbering on new page so that the dialogue numbering begins with 1 for every new page,
- Reset numbering on new scene so that the dialogue numbering begins with 1 for every new scene.
If you already have scene numbers in the selected script that you want to retain, select Keep existing Dialogue Numbers in the MANAGE DIALOGUE NUMBERS dialog. When you select this option, the present dialogue numbers are left undisturbed even when you insert new dialogues. The new dialogues are numbered alphabetically and take the previous existing dialog’s number as a prefix. For example, if you insert two dialogues following scene number 3, they are numbered as 3A and 3B.
