How do I rearrange or reorder pages?

Looking to rearrange or reorder script pages? Here's what you need to know.

All User-Added / Inserted pages can be reordered from within the Page Maker with a simple tap + drag. These include Facing Pages, Sides, or pages that were Copied/Pasted.

On the other hand, Native pages (official script pages, in their imported order) aren't designed to be rearranged within normal use, as Scriptation relies on script pages being in their set order so that Note Transfer and other tools can work effectively.

However, there are a few circumstances that you might want to rearrange pages.

I received Revised Pages and not the fully collated script.

Learn more about Collate Pages, which will integrate your new pages, transfer the annotations, and automatically delete the old pages. You do not have to manually remove pages when you use Collate Pages.

My inserted pages can no longer be rearranged

Very rarely, Inserted pages can get mismarked as Native pages. If this happens, use Master Edit Mode mode to mark Inserted pages as Native pages and vice versa. After assigning pages to Inserted status, you will be able to rearrange them.

The above situations do not apply. I just want to rearrange pages!

Carefully read the instructions for Master Edit Mode. This super secret mode allows administrative level settings for modifying pages. After assigning your script pages to Inserted status, you will be able to Rearrange them.

DISCLAIMER: We only recommend rearranging pages on a document that you do not need to use for Note Transfer again.
