Imagine following situation::
In my Impress presentation I am showing slide N,
Because and only because of the discussion I want to show additionally (e.g.) 2 slides, in one sequence, and then return to my slide N exactly in the status the slide N was before I left it. (I grouped these 2 slides in a custom show and call it CustShow.)
To start CustShow I want to click on text or button on slide N
After the last slide of the CustShow I want to show again slide N of the (main) presentation. I want an automatic return to slide N, which should be exactly in the status it was, when I left the slide N. (Slide N should not start from the beginning.)
I personally keep the slides for my custom show(s) at the end of my main presentation in a section I call "LinkedSlides". Howeve, idealy the CustShow could also be located somewhere on the PC.
In Impress I looked into "interaction" and "hyperlink" but could not find a way to show CustShow and return to my slide N from where I wanted to branch. I had to create another link at the end of my CustShow to return to slide N. Thus, slide N always starts from the beginning.
Let me please also explain what I did in In MS PowerPoint:before I switched over to LO
1- created a custom show
2 - created a text box or button at the slide from where I wanted to start the custom show
3 - hyperlinked text box (or button) with the custom show and set a flag to return to the starting slide in the main presentation.
What I would like to have as an enhancement is a copy of the described PowerPoint functionality.
As usual, I am willing to test this feature if I can install a LibO version parallel to my production version.
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: 126.96.36.199 release

This is certainly possible, see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel#Windows
There is also https://github.com/reisi007/LibreOffice_Server_Installation_GUI/blob/master/LibreOffice%20Server%20Install%20GUI.sln for a more automated way.
Thanks for that information.
Please inform me in due time on the version to be tested.

Oh - just to set expectations straight, LibreOffice is a volunteer project. In general, we have *many* more ideas than people willing to implement.
I am aware of the fact that LibO is a project of volunteers. And the great devs we have are never enough. I currently can't sit down on learn how to write codes. But maybe in a few years time I can do so. In the meantime my support is limited to bug reporting, posting enhancement request, trying to answer questions in AskLibO , and offering my help for testing the enhancement requests..... So the version with this enhancement request might come up in a few month or a few years.... my offer stays and I hope to be able to test it also in a few years.... I am not 25 anymore....
