This seems obvious enough that I expect this is known already, but I just haven't seen mention of it. So I am asking if it is happening to anyone else.
I cannot edit the animation on ship parts. When I select a ship design with animated parts, the editor shows me the ship but is not moving the animated parts. Selecting a part and giving it an rotation speed or similar function and nothing shows in the editor. The part stays in place. If I quit the editor and re-enter, then it shows the added animation.
This happens with old designs that used to work just find and with newly created ships. It cripples my individual ship design style since I animate ships a lot, but if it is widespread, it should be affecting others as well. It has been true since the advent of Crusades.
