Is there any way to achieve the following scenario:

You are doing a presentation with powerpoint or the libre office equivalent. You show a slide and then at the end when you transition to the next you can choose to transition to the next one normally, or can hold down a key an transition to another slide instead (perhaps skipping out some, or going back to an earlier one)? In this way you can if you set things up properly beforehand dynamically change the course of a presentation while you give it and you can respond to things like questions or comments from the audience by skipping to different bits or taking a different route through, as long as you prepared multiple different courses of action and slides beforehand.

I know this sort of thing could be done if you set up your "slides" as a series if web pages with links, or as a special one-off program made in python or something, either of which would let you change what happened next by choosing to hold down a key (no key to advance normally from "slide" 5 to 6, key a to skip to slide 9, key b to skip to slide 45, key z to go back to slide 3...).

But can this be done natively in ms office powerpoint or libre office impress?

Thanks
