Default How to skip region cycle like you can in logic

Say I'm playing back a song with


and I want to playback and skip over chorus 3 (B to Outro) how would I do this?
Also, I want to do this without deleting anything from the timeline.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, Pro Tools doesn't allow this. Having said that, there are some ways around that problem and here is what I would do:
1-Open the session and go to File>Save Copy(check the box to include audio files).
2-Open the copy version. Enable the ALL group>highlight the part you want to skip>select Shuffle mode(F1)>delete the highlighted clips.
3-if you get what you want, great!(save this as your new version). If not, Ctrl-z is your best friend

since you are working on a copy of the original session, no matter how much you try to screw up, the original session remains untouched BTW, the same technique works for adding in, like if you decide you want to double-up the last chorus(ALL group enabled>highlight the chorus>select shuffle>Paste(or duplicate the clip(s). In all cases, remember to revert back to GRID or SLIP because Shuffle mode(if you forget its enabled) can wreak havoc(as can forgetting to disable the ALL group). In any case, Ctrl-z to the rescue
