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..

  • Before I just used my keyboard. Using the navigation symbols works perfectly. Thx!

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.
