I was wondering if there's a way to delete all child components when deleting the master (or just all components from a page in general)?
I realise this is probably a very odd one but it would save a lot of hassle when creating style guides, making sure nothing is missing!
No, You have to delete child components from canvas (page)
Think there is a possibility of a feature request for this type of thing?
Not really, but if you don't want to overlook any child instances, add something very colorful to the master, before deleting it. So you can clearly see all those instances popping up like flowers in a field 🙂
that could work, will speak to my designers about it as an option! cheers
This needs to be a feature request as if there are 300 screens there is no way of selecting all child components... I don't want to spend my entire day individually clicking 300 hamburger menus.
The current version offers the option (from the contextual menu in the Components list) to Highlight all child elements of a component. An extra option to Select them would be helpful in your situation.
It's not a feature request yet, so feel free to add it to the list...
