Preview not working in Multi-Page experiment but works in A/B Test

Whenever I preview a variation in a multi-page experiment, only the Original variation will display. If I change the experiment type to A/B test, the preview will work as expected. 

 

I've checked and the Optimizely snippet is present on my page.

I've also tried putting my changes in setTimeout()

I would suggest trying a force preview using the following set up:

http://yoursitename.com/?optimizely_x123456=1

Where 123456 would be your experiment number and 1 would be the index of which variant you're attempting to preview from the experiment. 0 would typically represent the original variant, 1 would be the next, etc.

That doesn't seem to work if the experiment is still in Draft mode. Is there any way to do this without making the experiment active?

This was identified during/shortly after the AWS S3 issues. I've created a dummy experiment and seems to be working again,
