Adam,

What you seek is in the 1.2 beta -- enable "buttons" from the Scene menu or:

set scene_buttons

You can then drag to reorder within the stack, rename, update, and delete -- all with the right mouse button.  Left-click takes you to the scene you click on, and middle-click-and-drag allows you to sweep through all of the scenes present, just like with residues in the sequence viewer or objects within the object stack.

What I believe Sarina is referring to is the fact that only the name is shown in the Scene Button stack, not an actual thumb of the image.  That would make Scene Buttons more like PowerPoint's slide sorter pane, rather than merely table of names or numbers.

Cheers,
Warren

PS. We haven't made much noise about 1.2 beta yet because there are still enough known glitches with the new features for users to be wary.  We'll certainly let everyone know when it make sense for more people to try it!

It is especially difficult to remember which scene is which when you
open a pse file that you haven't looked at for a few months. Would it be
simple or easy to just let us name the scenes like we name the objects
and selections in the pane on the right?
