Nesting events

I've created arcs titled Act I, II, III. Inside each I add events that equate to scenes, and then created parent events that would equal chapters. In each parent, an event called something like "start of [parent name]" is automatically added, which I then delete since it's not a real event. Is there an easier way?

Hi, When you assign an event to be a parent for the first time, there should be a message that appears that says "You are converting this event to a parent container. The start and end positions of parent container events are determined by their child positions. Do you wish to create a new start and end child events to preserve the current start and end positions of this event?" If you click "No" to this message, the "start of" event should not be created. Are you seeing this message when you assign an event to be a parent? If not, please let us know Jess
