Animations don't play in editor mode?

I couldn’t find anything on this subject so a quick question:

I don’t know if this was intended with the latest update but any animated objects/particles don’t animate in the viewport edit mode UNLESS you move around the level.

So, everything is static when you look at the viewport; if you start moving around, things start animating.

Is this intended and if so, is there a way to change it to animate all the time?


Try in the viewport hitting Ctrl+R.

Nice, thank you!
