A feature that lets you copy the actions of a button and past it in another already existing button!
For example: If you have a button with the actions: Go to next page, and make a sound. i would like to see a feature that lets you copy these actions (Go to next page and make a sound, or any other action) without physically copying the whole button but only the actions within the button and paste it into another already existing button.
If you have a button with the action: make a sound when clicked, and you want to have all the other buttons to have the exact same action as the button with the sound, you have to go to every single button, set up the action and choosing the sound. But it would be so much easier if it was able to copy this action and past it into all the buttons! It would save a hell of a lot time and it would really improve InDesign!

You can Alt (PC) / Option (macOS) + drag to copy the button and keep the actions intact on the copies, but copying and pasting doesn't keep them - https://www.creativepro.com/watch-duplicating-interactive-buttons/#comments
Anyone got a fix to this?
Add actions to all buttons in a particular state would save SOOO much time. There Has to be a way to add this!

Definitely. This would save so much time.

I would also like the ability to change the actions of several buttons at the same time. I'm trying to get buttons on a curve so having to make multiple buttons for the same thing. Being able to batch select a load of shapes and changing them all together would save SO much time!
Why isn't this a thing? I have 20+ actions with a single button, and need them to happen to 15 more buttons, so I have to manually enter them all? It seems like there should be an easier way through this.
