When co ordingating a play or dramatic read and we have to put multiple readers against the files they are in. Is there a way to enter multiple readers in sections at the same time or do you have to do it one at a time. Many thanks in anticipation. :help:

You can add multiple readers to one section using their reader numbers, separated by a comma:

1234,3157,4226 into the reader name field.

But then, you'll have to know their reader numbers to do that.

EDIT: I do not know if you could add the same multiple readers to more than one section using this method. I don't see why you can't, but I don't want to experiment. 8-)

Got you thanks for that handy to know. If I create the cast list first I can gather the numbers then add them in the MW. Love it when there is a shortcut. Many thanks
