    • Insert before
    • Insert after

    The story appears in the list of stories in the rundown and in the Editing panel.

  5. To create a placeholder, click the New media placeholder button.

    The Assets panel loads the placeholder properties.

    The title of the placeholder is set to rundown and story name by default. However, you can still rename the placeholder if desired.

    The placeholder appears in the Assets panel of the NIS5 web client.

  7. Drag the placeholder from the Assets panel and drop it into the Media column of your story.
