German term or phrase: Rückverzweigung in die nächsthöhere Meldeebene
context: operating instructions for a vacuum dryer

FUNKTIONEN DER ESCAPE-TASTE
Rückverzweigung
Wird innerhalb der Funktionsebene eine begonnene Feldeingabe mit ESCAPE abgebrochen und die Taste gleich darauf erneut gedrückt, so wird der Funktionsablauf beendet und es erfolgt eine Rückverzweigung in die nächsthöhere Ebene. Mit jedem weiteren Drücken von ESCAPE erfolgt eine weitere Rückverzweigung, d. h. jeweils an der Stelle, von der die aktuelle Anzeige angewählt wurde und zuletzt vom Hauptmenü in die Meldeebene.
Von der Meldeebene aus wird durch Drücken von ESCAPE keine weitere Rückverzweigung ausgeführt.

I guess it's the combination of Rück- and nächsthöhere that's confusing me. Would much appreciate anyone being able to shed some light on what's going on here.

TIA, Beth

Explanation:
If you read "Rückverzweigung" as "return" and "nächsthöhere Ebene" as upper level, the sentence should be less confusing.

While entering data, pressing Escape for the first time aborts the entry. Pressing Escape again returns to the previous level (one level up in the menu hierarchy). Any subsequent Escape will move you up by one level. Once you've reached the main menu, Escape will display the annunciator level (if that's what you call it).

Hope this sheds some light on it.

... read \"nächsthöhere Ebene\" as previous level, of course. Got entangled in this sentence, as well.

I was having trouble with the concept of *returning* to a next higher level, but your explanation makes sense. Thanks very much for your help!
