Naming chapter points

DVDit Pro labels chapter points “Chapter 1,” “Chapter 2,” and so on automatically. DVDit Pro updates the numbering as you add, move, or delete chapter points so that they are still numbered sequentially. You can rename chapter points to make them easier to identify.

There are several ways to rename chapter points. Here are two:

To rename chapter points in the Project window:

  • In the Project window, display the Details view (right-click on the window background and choose View > Details from the shortcut menu).

  • Double-click the movie’s icon to display a list of all the chapters in the movie.

  • Right-click on the chapter you want to rename and choose Rename from the shortcut menu. The name becomes editable.

  • Type a new name and press the Enter key.

To rename chapter points in the Timeline window:

  • Click the movie’s icon in the Project window.

  • In the Timeline window, double-click the chapter point you want to rename. The Edit Chapter dialog box appears.

  • Type a new name in the Name box.

  • Click the OK button.
