Do you find yourself reviewing bookmarks, replaying a segment of a podcast, or checking the index of the document you’re reading often? Good news – we have a Jump Back feature for you to use!

What is the Jump Back feature?

The Jump Back feature allows you to seamlessly move between your current point in a title, show, or document, to another point. Even better, it’ll help you avoid losing your place when cross-referencing within the same material!

You can use this feature when viewing or listening to the following types of content:

  • Books
  • Audiobooks
  • Podcasts
  • Sheet Music
  • Documents

At this time, the Jump Back feature is only available for use through the Scribd mobile app. If you don’t have the app installed yet, follow the directions in this article so you can begin using this option while enjoying our library!

Using the Jump Back feature

  1. Sign in to your account on the Scribd mobile app
  2. While reading or listening to content, navigate to another point besides your current place
  3. Two dots will show on the progress bar at the bottom of your device’s screen marking your new and prior location; a blue arrow will also appear on either the right or left side of your device’s screen
  4. Tap on the blue arrow to jump to the page or timestamp indicated; alternatively, tap on the new dot in the progress bar to jump to your new point
  5. Tap on the blue arrow or initial dot again to go back to your starting point

Disabling or clearing points created with the Jump Back feature is not possible at this time, although we hope to include this in the future!

We hope the option to Jump Back makes skipping between points in your reading quick and easy! We’re also happy to assist with additional questions you might have on how to use it. Just contact Scribd Support, and our team can help!
