UI standards for "Next" button


#1

I have a need to create a wizard type input form that allows user to proceed from one step to the other. Normally when I have a form where all fields are required I would just put the Next / Continue button at the bottom.

In this case however many of the pages have a very long list of select-able items that are optional (the user should be able to proceed after making 1 or more selections), and making the user scroll all the way to the bottom of a list that can potentially be very long does not seem like the best way.

Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
