Timer not working when hidden

I have noticed recently that when the timer is running and hidden it does hold any value besides the value before it was hidden, It works if hidden and in edit mode with "show hidden in edit" on but if it is turned off it doesn't work. Is this normal?

Hi @hugowaller Thanks for reaching out! We have a feature request to enable this component to work when hidden, but this is currently expected.

In the meantime, our recommendation is to either use a custom component, or use our existing components (such as the button) + JS logic

Hi @Tess its about 8 month but still timer component stops when hidden and can you please add in your feature request to make its UI Better similar to the attached image.
