Control/Dimming Chauvet Stage Designer 50: Manual Step backwards?

Hi all
I'm currently running the lights for a small-ish theater/musical show.

I'm stuck with a Chauvet Stage Designer 50 for control. I works well since we only use 24 dimmer channels and traditional fixtures.

The show requires some 60-80 lighting steps and I've spread them out into 20 sequences/chases/scenes.
I have used a combination of Single Chase and Mixed Chase to manually step through a chase and the switch to the next one.
Now I've discovered that the "Single Chase" mode will let me string the 10 chases making up the first act into one sequence. With that I can manually step forward through the complete first act.

HOWEVER, I have not found a way to go backwards. (Occasionally :) I do jump the que).

There are a number of reverse buttons but none of them seems to work with the step button.

Anyone out there with a trick up their sleeve?
