Creating Scenes

Having problems creating scenes.
Is there a way of splitting and importing a word document into scenes, similar to the use of # for chapters.
Also when I try to divide the imported chapter into scenes (using the green <+>) I make another chapter.
What newbie thing am I doing wrong?

The simplest way to cut a Word chapter up into scenes is to import the whole chapter into a Scriv document/file, and then just use the Scrivener “spli” functiion to break it up wherever you want to into as many seperate files as you wish. It works well and is simple to do. The manual explains it well.

Everything worked fine, when I imported a one chapter at a time.
