Copy and Paste Component from one Local Document to Another

Hi All,

 

When I Copy a Component to a New Document, its reverting to its Master State. In older versions, when copying and Paste a component, all states and changes where kept intact in the new Document. You could go to Master State, by using te function found in the "Right Click Menu"

 

Attached you can find an example of a Menu that was Copied and Pasted from One Document to Another. All Menu Names changed including Colour Scheme.

 

This is very frustrating as the Document is very complex now, and I can't go through each Pasted Component and do the changes One by One. 

 

Is there a work around this? and will this be Fixed in the very near? 

 

Thanks.

I use the Library, but that only stores the Master Component. 

My issue is when you copy and paste a Component that have Chnages to it. You can refer again to the image attached to the Issue. 

Thanks

Hi @47Play_MLT,

 

Sorry for the delay in response. When you copy-paste or share Components between documents, XD doesn't preserve the Component to artboard interactions since we can't guarantee that the destination artboards are always available. However, XD preserves the state-to-state interactions for each Component. What that means is for a Component that has a Hover state and a Tap trigger to an artboard - on pasting this in another document, XD preserves the Hover state interaction and discards the Tap trigger to the artboard. 

Let us know if you need further assistance from us. We'd be happy to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika
