Multi-state objects and animated elements not working on State 1
InDesign CC 2019 14.0:
I have a 4 state multi-state object. Each state has a full-screen image with a text title and description which animates in (Fly-in from top) for each state upon load. Left/Right buttons control the interactivity.
However, when I add an animation to the text title/description in State-1 it causes the full-screen image to not load and the test/description text doesn't appear either. (Tested in Indesign in the EPUB Interactivity Preview panel and on iPad/iBooks)
When testing it in the EPUB Interactivity Preview panel and I go to State-2 using the buttons and then return to State-1 the image loads and the text animates as planned.
Why won't the animation show when State-1 first loads? I wanted to attach the InDesign test file to show the issue but it won't allow.
Thanks for reporting the issue.
We are looking into this.

It seems this bug has been forgotten as it was reported one year and a half ago.
This bug is a major obstacle when you create interactive epubs! Basically my project ideas cannot be realised due to this bug.
Please give as an update! Thanks!
I have the same issue with cc 2018, cc2019 & cc2020.
Any scope for a solution?
