Hi there! We are working on a fix :pray:

We are also working on a larger multi-page apps project to help with performance between linked apps (more to come very soon!)

Will the fix come soon?

For the multi app improvement be coming soon?

it looks like we shipped a fix to Cloud and on prem. Have you noticed a difference? What version are you on?

The fix for this issue on embedded apps hasn't shipped quite yet (slated for Cloud v3.38.0, which comes out next week)

I'm expecting that multi-page apps will ship in April :slightly_smiling_face:
