Vertical Numbering in Cork Board mode

Is there any way to make the numbered index cards go down instead of across? I learned the Syd Field layout for structuring a screenplay on cards, and this…

1 5 9
2 6 10
3 7 11
4 8 12

… is what I’m used to.


Unfortunately, there is an option in Preferences to count/order from right to left, but not to count/order from top down, which I would like to have, too.

My workaround:

  1. Create a folder for every column.
  2. Select these folders in the binder.
  3. Choose Index Card view and switch it in order to get vertical sections (default are horizontal sections).

Now you can create, move, order index cards in columns. The cards are counted the way you indicated. Plus: If every column represents a chapter and every index card a scene, you have them already in place.

Thanks! I’ll try it.
