Each layout is controlled by its own event sheet.. you will need to share the event sheet the animation event is with the others (right click event sheet to see options).
I think you can also set an event sheet to global now and it will be shared automatically...
No, I mean the animations plays whilst I'm on Layout A which is controlled by it's own event sheet
But when I click a button to take me to another Layout, the aniamtion itself (the animation in Layout A) freezes.
It's basically a timer going from 12 to 6 (0.016 fps), and I need the timer to still play (count to 6) while I'm currently switched to another Layout. I need the animation in Layout A to not freeze while I'm switched to Layout B, where I can't see the animation.
