I have a lot of slides with lists that use either pause or <number> after item so that they are shown at different times. Some slides have up to 9 different stages for it, so after I am done presenting and someone needs to go to a slide at the beginning it will be a hassle to go through all of them.

Is there a way so that if I am going in the reverse order in the pdf, once I reach a slide that has multiple stages it will go to the frame before and skip all the in-between moments?

I found a lot of questions/answers that would use hyperref to skip to specific sections, but I just want so that when I am going back it will skip all the unnecessary steps.

Is that way the only way to do it? I am using metropolis theme and it doesn't have buttons at the bottom of the slide.

You could modify the metropolis theme to have navigation symbols.

Comment out line 106.

    The .dtx file is not the one loaded by beamer, so changing that file won't do anything (and it's not recommended to change package code). May 10, 2019 at 2:02
