I would like to clarify a few points regarding your query.
1. Adding a new act at the end of an act includes the last scene of the previous act.
- To insert an act you have to place the cursor anywhere in the scene which you want to make the first scene of the Act. So, you have to place the cursor on the next scene not on the End of Act as "End of Act" is the part of the previous act.
2. Every time I create a new act, it puts one scene in the outline, e.g. "Scene 01" will appear under "Act #2", but then Scenes 02 - whatever appear beneath a new act called Act #. The script view doesn't reflect this at all.
- In the script view we show Start of Act and End of Act only with the first and last scenes of the act. If you want to see the act number to which any other scene belong please open the scene properties panel ( View Menu > Scene Properties Panel ) nad look at the Act field present.
3. The '>' icons for the Acts sometimes have an extra white triangle hhovering over them.
- This UI issue is not reproducible at our end.
If you still have any other issues regarding this we can have a small connect session.

The issue seems to have resolved itself this morning, but the functionality was not how you described in your post.
Thanks for the speedy reply!
