The mobile version of publications didn't have animations for as long as Maglr existed. We changed that now. Mobile devices are more capable of showing advanced animations nowadays so that was a reason for us to make the animations available for mobile as well.
When you create a mobile version by setting your view to mobile and dragging the items on the page the animations from desktop will automatically be activated for mobile as well.
You can change or turn off the animations on mobile without changing it on desktop. In some situations will see small purple dots next to your mobile settings to show you these are changed on mobile.
Desktop is leading so if you don't change a setting on mobile the setting of desktop will sync with the mobile version when it comes to animations. Once you change certain animation settings they will not be in sync with the desktop version anymore. To reset an animation to the desktop version you can use the button on the top of the animations panel or you can click on a purple dot for some settings to only reset those specific animation settings.
