Problem description: 
In regard to the question

I've suggested some ideas to improve control over presentation

Current behavior:

We have Prior, Next, Last, First, and so forth

Expected behavior:

We could have assigned special page 0~9, as "ctrl + 0~9" like in RTS game, up to 10 special pages to be called up at any point.

Also the "back" to last page, could we have the behaviour, better work like in the web browsers, either backspace or alt+left(arrow)?

Operating System: All
Version: release

Please keep bug reports separate, we'll only address 1 bug per report.

I'll address first one and edit title here:

Valid enhancement request.

Marking as:
Low - makes going to certain slide a bit easier but not sure how/if most users would get much out of this. Normal flow is not to jump back and forth in a presentation, it's to move forward 1 by 1 or go back/forward by one slide.

Potential easy hack, marking as such

Thanks for your report!

In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise

Hmm. So this does not really help with the original ask.libreoffice question. I'd propose the 'Go to page or object' action in Slideshow->Interaction instead.

The feature itself is rather very obscure, and the limit to 10 'special slides' is annoying and arbitrary. Also, it needs UI changes in Impress, to somehow specify which slides of your slidedeck should be 'special'. With that, not really EasyHackable, and I'd prefer some UX insight here as well.

Finally, if you know the slide number you want to jump to, during presentation mode, simply type that number and press enter, and voila.

Does the above solve your problem sufficiently well?
