You can create new sections of various types (Act, Scene, Shot, etc.) to organize your storyboard frames by pressing the New Section button at the top of the Story Tree view or with the Edit > Add New Section command.

If you don't like the section names provided, you can use the File > Edit Story Structure command (or its tool button in the Story Tree view) to change the names of sections, change their nesting order, or change the way they're numbered.

When a sound clip is selected, one of the Edit Externally buttons is enabled.

The item currently selected in the tree has its properties shown below the tree.

Properties for the entire story are shown when you select the "story root," which is the top element in the story tree, with the open book icon .

Sections that are split out are shown with an asterisk overlay .

A sound clip is a section of recorded or imported audio placed in a story. Sound clips are attached to frames or sections in the Story Tree.
