How to return to the previous page displayed in a window

Hi Brett, I'm a big fan of your work and I'd like to buy marked2, just want to check for a feature I can't find in the demo.

I'd like to be able to use a back button (or keyboard shortcut) so that after I navigate from one page to another by clicking on a link in the rendered markdown (keeping my view in the same window), there's a way to go back to the initial document.

Not necessarily to function as a full browser, but just to get back after going to check a reference. I was hoping to see a pair of back and forward buttons in the cluster of icons bottom right, or perhaps just a keyboard shortcut allowing me to go 'back' in windows that have some history.

Looking at the KB, I think you've already said that there is no back button, but one is needed in principle. I would really value that, as otherwise I'll have to figure out how to build a preprocessing toolchain to coerce a browser to read markdown! If it doesn't exist yet please could you consider including it (even if only as a keyboard shortcut) in the next release?
