By requiring to get back to where you came from implies that you need a non-linear presentation.

If you want to create a non-linear presentation with a tree or hierarchical structure, it can be very time consuming to do this manually, especially when you start having more than 10 slides since the number of links you need to manage is an exponential function of the number of slides.

One alternative is to use an add-in such as ActivePresentation Designer (available at to create the tree structure and links across the slides in your presentation. This adds a multi-levelled interactive non-linear menu bar (like a Web site) to the top or bottom of your slides and you can click on the items in the menu bar to jump to various slides in your presentation.

hard coded to return to the specific place. There might be different slides
that come to that location so would there need to be specific buttons to
each or can it dynamically link back to the originating location.
