Naming and Reordering Sections in Sway

September 22, 2015

Naming and Reordering Sections in Sway

Sections hold any of the content that is placed within your Sway other than the main cover of your Sway – which is held attached to the Title Card. We have already explored the relationship between a Section and a Heading Card – and how you can add Sections within our Sections in Sway tutorial. If you want to delete the entire Section along with all the Cards it contains, click the Delete icon, shown highlighted in green within Figure 1. Do note though that you can also delete just the Section by deleting just the Heading Card. Doing so moves all other Cards to the preceding Section.

Explore how you can work better with Sections in Sway.

Sections in Sway

September 21, 2015

Sections in Sway

We already explored that the Title card in Sway cannot be deleted. That’s because the Title Card represents the entire Sway. Now let us look at another such relationship in Sway – but even before we get there, let us understand the concept of Sections. Sections in Sway are much like Sectionsin PowerPoint – while a Section in the latter is a bunch of consecutive slides, a Section in Sway is a bunch of consecutive Cards.
