There are several navigations whilst on the as-built page itself:

The yellow areas (shown in picture for clarity) on the border of the as-built link to the adjacent as-built. It is better to zoom in, as the click must be between the blue and black lines.
By clicking in the corner, you can link to as-builts on the diagonal.
If no as-built exists where you click, you will just stay on the current as-built.
By clicking anywhere in the pink area (shown for clarity), you will be returned to the index.

To take a screenshot, eg zoomed in area, press the power button and the ‘windows’ button (bottom and centre of the phone) at the same time. The image is stored in your pictures under ‘screenshots’. ​
