Go To Menu (CONT.) • Go-By Title- a list of the titles of slides 1-60. From here you will be able to choose which slide you want to go to by scrolling up and down the list of titles. You must use the Slide Navigator to get to Slides 61-141 as they are not included on the Go-By Title list of slides.
Go To Menu (CONT.) The Hidden Slide and Custom Show options are grayed out because they have no use in this training module. • Go-Previously Viewed-This takes you back to the last slide you viewed. This is particularly useful when you use a link or button to get to a slide then want to return to the slide you just left.
