When a page or artwork containing animation is duplicated or copy and pasted the timing panel ends up reversed and unlinked.

This is becoming quite an issue for us as it effects workflow, having to reorder animation timings and relink.

Seems like a bug that shouldnt need to happen.

Hi Russ,

this is an old bug. Reported years ago. No solution or fix yet.

I once tried to write a script to work around the issue, but I failed.

 

FWIW: Scripting the timing features is very difficult or sometimes impossible because of bugs in the feature.
