Using markers

Markers help you organize a composition like bookmarks or headers for your transcript. They're also handy for quick navigation because you can instantly jump between them using the Action bar.

Adding a marker

  1. Click in your script where you want to add a marker.
  2. Press M or # while either script tool is not enabled or use the Action bar and search for Insert marker.

On a blank line, you can also add a marker by selecting ... > Add marker

Moving markers

If you need to adjust the position of a marker, hover your mouse over the marker and you will see a Snag_1fbba774.png grabber icon appear to the left. Click the grabber icon, then move it to the desired drop location. As you do so, you will see words in the script become highlighted in grey. Dropping the marker at that location will place the marker before the highlighted word.

Renaming markers

To rename a marker simply click into the marker area and make any adjustments to the label.

Deleting markers

To delete a marker, highlight the marker in your script and press the delete key.

Using markers as video chapters

When exporting a video file you can configure the export settings to use your markers as chapters in the resulting file. To do so, click the Publish button in the top right corner then select the Export > Video tabs.

Click the toggle to enable the Metadata option if it isn't already, and select the settings icon. At the bottom of the Metadata options, click the toggle to enable Include markers as chapters then close the menu by clicking the X at the top. Once complete you may export your file.

Enable markers as chapters on exported video-3.
