Best way to return to base layer?

Jun 20, 2014

The situation is:

I have a series of multi-layered slides that I wish to allow the user to navigate through, base to successive layers, in a linear fashion. (Example: base, L2, L3, etc.) I also need the user to be able to navigate backwards (L3, L2, base). I have provided 'continue' and 'back' buttons on the slides to facilitate forward and backward navigation.

To navigate 'back' from layer 2 to the base layer, I elected to use the  'jump to slide' action, where targeted slide is the base layer.

My questions are:

1. Is this the best solution?

2. If I use this solution are there known problems that may occur?

3. If this is not the best solution, what is?

Its best to simply use buttons on each layer.

On the base it has a 'next' button that has a trigger for #show layer#  L1.

On Layer 1 it has 'back' button which simply hides L1 and a 'next' button with a trigger #show layer#   L2.

Layer 2 has a back button which has trigger show layer L1  and next button with a trigger show layer L3  etc 

Its straightforward when navigating to a new layer  it hides the old one when navigating back to the base slide hide the current layer.
