Preview this slide and the following slides

I'm a bit tired of always having to preview the preceding slides in a scene if I want to test the link between this slide and the following slides. I would like a function that says 'preview this slide and the following slides' or 'preview entire project from this slide on' or something. I'm not sure if there is a feature request thread, if so I'll add it there.

What is the issue -is it the load time or just the fact that you have to page through the previous slides to get to the one you are testing? 

If it is the latter, one trick that you ca do is to turn on the menu even if you are one using it in the final output and use it to jump to the page you want.

Turning on the menu or creating a hotspot are all good options to prevent having to sit through your timeline before you can click next. But I would still prefer the option to simply start my preview on the selected page. The reduced loading times would obviously be welcomed.

Hi all,

I understand the need you are expressing but I am asking myself how it would be possible...

I have slides that link to 4, 5 or 6 topics, slides with multiple layers linking to several other slides so I wonder if it is possible to generate an overview from where you are and beyond.

It would have to analyse all the links in the actual slide and its layers, and so on for every link or destination (language barrier makes it difficult for me to express it exactly the way I would like to... sorry!)

Just wanted to point that out because to me, it looks complicated, and I think it may not be part of next release.

Have a nice day!

Yes, the inability to preview just a few slides within a scene causes problems as the choice to preview 'this slide' excludes any slide advances properties. I keep getting caught out by this in large scenes!

It would be excellent to have the preview drop-down choice as :

>this slide

>slide from....to....

>this scene
