Hello, I know how to make off-page reference through Format/Behavior/DblClick, however I'm wondering is it possible anyhow to go back from where I came from. For example I reference page3 both from page1 and page2, I would like to go to page1 if I have clicked reference on page1 before and to page2 if I have came to page3 from page2.
Probably some macro? I have somewhat older Visio version API help and there I could not find any property of kind "Previous Page".
Thank you.

Not directly using standard visio functionaity
what you want to do requires a custom Macro
with VBA code to keep track of the page you are coming from.

Is there any event upon page change that I can use for implementing of such functionality?
I mean - how can I get notified for page change and can I distinguish if it was done through shape double click or manually? Or I have to goto (initally, first time) to another page with macro (which will save current page in some stack) too?
Do you have such or some close (from processing point of view) sample macro? I'm not sure I can keep "static" data stack inside VBA. And generally (I have some  experience in Visio automaticg) I think I had some misunderstanding of custom functions callings from ShapeSheet, suppose have been doing some stupid mistake that was left unrevealed.
Thank you.

FINE. Tell me how much additional points would you like for the solution I need. However keep in mind that I did not mention in initial post that i'll assume acknowledgement of my own understanding of the problem as an answer.
Nevertheless thank you for reply, I will not "punish" you with rating if you are unable to solve it.

ok please do not misunderstand me, I think that I did not explain mysef.
I was referring to the custom functions question.
And yes you're correct in the specification you made in your second comment.

I don't want any points just to help you get the answer you need.
My sugestion at this point would be to post a new question that specifies
more specifically your requirement.
i.e.
"How do I program custom navigation buttons in Visio?"
this would help you more since  you know now that standard functionality
would not help you.

And this way the VBA experts will point you quickly in the needed direction for th program  
that I see now that you need.
