Using markers and chapters

Markers help you organize a composition like bookmarks or headers for your transcript. They also work as chapters for your project. They're also handy for quick navigation because you can instantly jump between them using the marker icon near the play button.

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 Underlord and look for Add Chapters.

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

Navigating markers

If you need to navigate between markers, you can do so easily from the marker icon near the play button at the bottom of the project. For more details see: Playback and navigation

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 and hold 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.
