Restricted Navigation in SL2

Greetings,

I found this text on the url below. Does restricted navigation affect the Next button functionality? I think the answer is yes, but I can hope. If so, I think you should add more directions to the link below, specifically stating the relationship between the end of the timeline and the layer function with the next button. I regularly have need to restrict the navigation on the menu but don't always want to limit when the next button is clicked. I know the workarounds. But again I'm hoping I'm missing something.

Cheers, Julie

Here's the difference between restricted and locked navigation:

Restricted navigation means learners can view the current slide and any slide they've previously viewed, but they can't jump ahead or skip over slides.
Locked navigation means learners can only view slides in the order you've designed. They can't jump ahead or skip over slides, nor can they go back to any previously viewed slides.
