I faced an annoying situation using the beamer class. The situation:

During a presentation it is helpful to use "split" frames (produced by commands like \pause etc.). But when there is a discussion or a question/answer part after the presentation, the split frames are annoying. Because when you would like to go back to a certain piece of information, it takes ages to get there.

I wonder if there is the possibility to arrow forward using split frames and to arrow back "jumping" from non-split frame to non-split frame.

Are you using some navigation symbols or any miniframes-like outer theme? Also you can place skip forward backward buttons wherever you wish.. – percusse Dec 22 '11 at 13:43
Before I just used my keyboard. Using the navigation symbols works perfectly. Thx! – Philip Dec 28 '11 at 19:21

The problem can simply be solved by using the default beamer navigation symbols

or one can make use of the navigation symbols that appear in the outer themes; smoothbars or miniframes variants for quick jumps.
