Copying animations loses timing panel settings
When copying/duplicating animations (using ANY method), the timing panel settings are completely lost. This is really bad for complicated animations. The timing panel settings should be maintained when animations are copied/pasted or duplicated in any way.
Thanks for reporting this issue. We’re currently reviewing it.

This default behavior makes creating a responsive document almost impossible. PLEASE work on a remedy for this issue. Documents are being made for mobile more and more with each passing upgrade. The timing panel gets completely out of order both when an alternate layout is created as well as simply copying and pasting a couple animations from one page or file to another.
Hi, I'd like to be able to avoid this issue as well. Please let us know when it's fixed!

Please fix this issue. This will save our publication hundreds of hours of work. Our workflow involves dividing the work between the layout artists and compiling it. Every time we compile it, we have to redo the timing.
