As promised here the information on how I created a work-around.
Copied slides for custom shows into a special section of the presentation after the last slide of
the main presentation.
Created a text (name of a custom show) and used interaction with "go to page".
Used slide 1 of the custom show as target.
At the last slide of the custom show I added the text "return". Using interaction "go to page" and
jumped back to the page from where I started the custom show.
Disadvantage against MSO:
- One needs to create an interaction to return; in MSO one can just flag return to start (or
- The slide from which one jumps to the custom show will start from the beginning.
I just hope that there is an enhancement in the near future.

Thanks for the hints
'hiding' is not an option as I want to stay in presentation mode
Using your URL approach could be a possible work around, I was thinking in the meantime about
using 'interaction' and do a similar thing. Need to some testing and will post the result. It
might take me a few days.

Have you considered 'hiding' these slides --> if you wish to have
them seen, just click on 'show' these -
if they're not desired, the presentation will skip over them;
insert a URL which, when you click it, would send you to these
slides - when you wish to return to the main show, click on the URL within
this sub-show -
Hoping this helps,

Are you perchance referring to placing a URL link within the show;
if so, then that's what you do - when you click on it, then
site will open up.
If instead you're referring to placing a slide show within a slide
then just add the additional slides where you wish them to
If neither, then please explain further.
