Hello guys,

is there a way to use "Go To Previous View" on a button with in5?

I have a huge document. When I implement a link to a bookmark, I also want the user to be able to get back to the position of document that he was reading befor following the link.

Thanks for your support.

So actually I am looking for a way to jump back to the last selected bookmark.

Update: The current version supports the Previous View action and will take the user to the previously viewed page.


Sorry, Stephan. There isn't a way to do that without writing your own JavaScript code.

What kind of script should be?

Could you give me example of that code?
I activated hashtags in sliderSetting, but i can just change hashtags names in browsers by  window.history.go without actual moving back to previous slide.

I don't have time to write that code at the moment.
