Maintain last known component state when autoanimating to a new artboard
Would be great if XD would remember the last known component state when autoanimating to a new artboard. Or, better yet, let us mark components for state remembrance on artboard change. Otherwise we are right back to the thnig states was supposed to solve, duplicating artboards for the appearance of a saved state hahaha ;)
I have seen and voted on some other feature requests for conditional behavior, which could solve this issue too if implemented right, but this is a bit different.
I have posted an example prototype here:
When the prototype launches, click the blue arrow(at the right of the screen) to collapse the panel, then click the large red map point(in the US), or the zoom icon on the navigator(top right panel). Notice how it reverts the panel back to it's open state, even though you had it closed when you transitioned to the next artboard. You can test this back and forth by clicking the zoomout/showall icon in the (top right panel) which will take you back to the first artboard.
Again, I could solve this with a bunch of duplicated screens containing all the different states, but then we're back where we started before states existed.

Figma is doing it, and save lifes... save us please !
This is a must have
I am stunned this basic capability isn't yet part of XD.
This would be extremely helpful. I am trying to handle accordian style animations, and this would solve my problem.
Allowing an action to trigger another action would also be helpful.
