How to make one event immediately follow another
When you wish to make one event immediately follow another, there are two ways to do this.
First, you can drag and move an item so that they snap to the end of other items, following these steps:
- Select the event that you are moving. We will call this Event A.
- Then, with Event A selected, hover over the beginning or end of another existing item (Event B). A preview will appear that says 'Snap to the start/end of Event B'.
- Release Event A, and it will snap to the end of Event B
Secondly, you are able to make items consecutive. To configure the settings of your timeline so one item occurs consecutively after another, follow these steps:
- Select the two items you wish to make consecutive
- Go to the menu and click 'Item'
- From the drop down menu, choose 'Make Consecutive'
- The items will then be made consecutive in your timeline
If these events do not have duration, it is likely that these events will appear as though they occur at the same time in your timeline. To avoid this happening, event must have a duration to indicate when it ends.
Thirdly, you can add a constraint to ensure that one event immediately follows another. To do this:
- Open the Inspector for Event A.
- Go to the Constraints tab in the Inspector.
- Create a Constraints where 'End equals start of' Event B.
