Maybe its by design i dont know, you just have to change the speed of the object itself from the properties menu to see what i mean.
The idea was that I was going to have UI elements sitting out of view and then slide them onto the interface by changing the speed from 0 to whatever. I can get around though by spawning the object (with its speed set) when I need it instead.
Ive added another example, this time its with the "every X seconds" action instead of "On start of layout". It works on the second time it clicks over (still goes to the right first though).
