Name the Sequence

4

Partially Complete Sequence

At this point, you have a sequence that contains one breakpoint. While it will work, it isn't truly a sequence until there are two or more breakpoints within the sequence.

6

Complete Sequence

After adding a second breakpoint (of any simple type), it is now a functional sequence. However, you can repeat step 5 as many times as needed to insert additional breakpoints to the sequence.

Once you have added all the desired breakpoints to the sequence, you may need to change their order.
