Slides navigating in the wrong order
Feb 14, 2019
I have a new one! At least I can't find any discussion of this.
I hope I can explain this so you can follow it.
Slide 1.1 forward arrow goes to 1.2
Now on 1.2, the back arrow goes to 1.1.
Forward arrow again and it goes to 1.2 (so far so good). Forward arrow again and it goes to 2.1 (as it should).
Back arrow from 2.1 goes to 1.2. All good.
Back arrow again from 1.2 and it goes to 2.1. WHAT?!
Back arrow toggles between 1.2 and 2.1, never getting back to 1.1
(I can move forward, it's only the back arrow that's screwy)
This happens at some other places within the storyline.
Everywhere I search for support tells me about the menu. I don't care about the menu, I'm not showing it anyway. I just want the forward and back arrows to work like I expect them to!
I don't know if this is related, but my scenes aren't all in order. For example, in the situation above, it's actually 3.1, not 2.1 because scene 2 has lightbox slides. So the last slide of each scene is manually set for the "next" button (i.e., 1.2 next is set to go to 3.1) and the "back" button on the first slide of each scene is manually set to go to the last slide of what should be the previous scene (i.e., 3.1 is set to go to 1.2 when the back arrow is clicked). I don't think this is causing the problem, though, as the arrows only go to the wrong place once I try to back up more than one slide, and the problem doesn't always show up when changing scenes.
If there's a better way to reorder scenes so I can just say "next slide" or "previous slide" and just skip over scene 2, I'd love to know it. But mostly I just want to be able to back up more than one slide without a problem!
