Jump to previous scene not jumping

May 23, 2018

I have a slide at the end of scene 3 that should jump to previous scene.

Problem is, it doesn't jump.

I have to use jump to slide.

One thing worth mentioning, is scene 1 jumped to scene 3.  When the trigger on scene 3 fires to jump to previous scene, should I understand that it should jump to scene 1 or scene 2?

Hi there Sam,

So sorry you're running into this. We're seeing the same problem, and our team is on it. 

Until we have a fix in place, you can work around this issue by pointing to the actual scene you want to jump to instead of using "previous scene" in the trigger.

Thanks again for bringing this up, and I'll keep this discussion updated with any new information.

My understanding of previous is that you should be jumping back to Scene 1 as it was the previous scene you where in. This functionality helps with branching scenarios and Help/Tip/Resource Slides even  as you can jump out to a single slide and then successfully be able to jump back into the previous slide that you called the slide from.

I have the most updated version. I can't get this feature to work. I can substitute any number of other items in the Jump to scene section, a specific scene, a specific slide, next scene. However, the previous scene does nothing. Similar scenario as posted. Going from Scene 2 to 3 and need to return to 3. Using a variable set to false for scene completion. If false return to previous scene.

Hi there, Wendy!

The current workaround is to point the trigger to the specific scene, but I understand where you're coming from based on your design!
