Can't go back to previous screen between scenes

Can anyone tell me why Storyline 2 doesn't allow me to go back through a previous scene/lesson once I've left that scene/lesson?

When I finish the slides in lesson 1 and click "Next" to go to lesson 2, I go to the first slide in lesson 2. But when I click "previous" to go back to lesson 1, it will only allow me to go to the last slide in lesson 1. When I click "previous" from the last slide in lesson 1, it takes me to the first slide in lesson 2. It's a loop. I can't use the previous button to go through lesson 1 backwards, once I have started lesson 2.

I want the learner to have free navigation, but so far, I'm having no luck at that. Thanks for any help you can give!

Hi  Karen, the privious button takes you to the slide where you just left not the slide before it, so that's why you went into a loop.

If you want to go back to the first page of lesson 1 and you have one lesson in one scene, than you'd better to add a button and set a trigger to jump to the scence.
