Scripto's row numbering functionality lets you number rundown rows with whatever numbering syntax your project likes to use. (eg. 01, 02, 03... A1, A2, A3...)
You can always type numbers into the item number column manually. But the Numbering menu in the toolbar is home to a several powerful row numering actions.
Number all rows...
Number all rows... will number every row in your rundown, based off the "starting value" number and "increment by" number that you input.
For example, if I put a starting value of A1 and an increment by value of 1, rundown rows will be numbered A1, A2, A3, A4...
If I put a starting value of 0 and an increment by vaue of 10, rundown rows will be numbered 0, 10, 20, 30, 40...
The number all rows action will overwrite any existing row numbers.
Number selected rows...
This option works exactly like Number all row... except that the numbers will only be applied to selected rows. This is a useful way to renumber a specific set of rows without affecting row numbers in unselected rows.
The number selected rows action will overwrite any existing numbers in the rows you have selected.
Remove all row numbers
This action removes all row numbers from the rundown.
Remove selected row numbers
This action removes row numbers only from rows that you have selected.
Smart numbering uses any existing item numbers in the rundown as "starting values" and increments up by 1 in subsequent rows that don't already have item numbers.
Smart numbering will NOT change or overwrite existing item numbers. It will only insert numbers into rows that are not already numbered.
Say that your preferred numbering system is:
Act 1 is numbered A1, A2, A3...
Act 2 is numbered B1, B2, B3...
Act 3 is numbered C1, C2, C3...
Manually enter A1, B1, and C1 on each act row. Then select "smart numbering." The rows in rows in Act 1 will get numbered A2, A3, A4 and so on. The rows in Act 2 will get numbered B2, B3, B4 and so on.
Smart numbering is useful when you not want to have one single set of sequential numbesr across the entire rundown but instead want to number sections of the rundown with different prefixes or starting numbers.
