Any multiple fills/strokes added to a layer will be removed when using captured states - undo and history can't correct this!

I have also run into this issue using queries, but I am finding it more troublesome to reliably repeat.  

AD 2.4 (2240) • macOS 14.2

Thanks

I easily recreated this one time but not a second time:

  • Created two shapes
  • Added fill and stroke on one
  • Added one additional  fill and one additional stroke from the appearance panel, a bit thinner than the first
  • Moved it to the top in the appearance panel so both could be seen
  • Captured a state

Result:

  • Multiple strokes gone
  • Object was corrupted somehow, couldn't add multiple strokes to the particular object again, but could to other objects

Want to add something, @Westerwälder ? 

I simply no longer believe that there are any professional graphic designers here. Everything follows suit. Just everything.

How are Layer attributes being directly impacted by a Layer being hidden/unhidden? That's so error-prone.

I don't know, but I know that Serif wanted more frequent, smaller releases to avoid regressions. However, this just goes to show that good architecture requires foresight. I believe these layer states were rushed out in beta too quickly; the purpose of a beta isn't for customers to find and report fundamental flaws in the UI and architecture.

However, I could be wrong, and it might be a minor slip-up; I'm just not that convinced.

When this bug is resolved, I would love to see states work with multiple fills/strokes, rather than just not removing any additional fills/strokes.

I frequently test styling & colour combinations by toggling visibility between multiple fills/strokes and being able to do this en masse via the states panel would be incredibly useful.

(Presently, because of this bug, I fear using states at all though).

It's really a terrible bug to have in a release version for so long. Bugs that so recklessly remove data from documents should be fixed asap, and as someone else says, it's not reassuring or confidence-inspiring that it can happen at all. Then the architecture behind is seriously shaky and insecure.
