I have to prepare a beamer presentation, but depending on the audience, during the presentation I might decide to skip some material. Is there a way to do this without having to skip quickly through the slides? I seem to remember that there was a command, but I forgot what it was and anyway I never succeeded in having it work. Thanks for your help!

• Never worked with beamer presentation, but have you tried the hyperref package and \label and \ref? – Shade Apr 3 '18 at 16:39
• Ok, thanks. It was not what I was looking for but perhaps it works. Thank you to you and to Patrick. – Tanda Apr 3 '18 at 20:52
• if you give us an MWE, we can have a more sorrow look into it. With the question you've asked, hyperref is a completely satisfying solution. – Shade Apr 3 '18 at 21:11

Beamer offers a variety of navigation buttons for such purposes. Together with the \hyperlink command they can be used to conveniently jump to other slides or frames.

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
1

\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
2
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}[label=foo]
3
\end{frame}
\end{document}


For more examples, please see section 11.1 Adding Hyperlinks and Buttons from the beamer user guide.

You could use the hyperref package and create references to the slides you want to view.
