Is there a way to set a start point in a multi state object for a html epub?

I've been able to work around this by making the state I want first in most cases, but that won't work for this use case. It needs to be the state I set it in InDesign.

Off the top of my head, you could do this by having 68 as the first state with up and down buttons in that state. The up will go to state 69 and down would go to state 67. The rest of the states would have up and down buttons set to go to next and previous.

 

You'll have to adjust it for 31 to have only a next and 67 to have go to previous and a go to 68. 102 would only have a go to previous. 

 

If you haven't already, download and install Object States Assistant which will make this a whole lot less painful. https://www.automatication.com/index.php?id=25

The first state is the default state. If you want something else, you're going to need to explain it much better.

I'm mocking up a thermostat range of 31-102. I want to start in the middle and have it increment. There's a total of 72 states. For example, if I start at 68, I want to be able to have a button to jump to the previous state down to 31 then another to go to the next state up to 102.
