Correcting an animation number conflict can involve a number of steps to propagate the corrected templates to each of the pages successfully.  Below is a process which has been shown to be effective in resolving these conflicts. 


-In Graphics builder tools menu, options enable 'Modify Object AN field' and 'Show version 3.xx/4.xx tools'

-Start with the lowest level template and ensure that AN1 and AN2 are added to the right side of the screen outside the viewable area.

-Save and update pages.  Note that page update will only process the pages in currently selected project.  Where the template exists in an included project it will be necessary to first update pages in the include project and then again in the higher level projects.

-Check the rest of the templates to ensure that the new AN's are visible in the same location and with the same numbers.

-If the AN's have different numbers first try to change the base template using the page properties dialog to the standard - blank template and then back to the required template.

-If that is not successful change the base template to 'System - Blank' template, find the objects with AN 1 and 2 and adjust to new ANs.  Now set the pages template back to the original Template.  To adjust the AN open the objects properties dialog - Access tab - General tab.  If the AN field is disabled see step one.

-If that is not successful change the base template to 'System - Blank', adjust the object ANs on the page so they are all different to those on the original template. 

-Repeat the same process for each page.
