Feature Request-States do not inherit component instance default state modifications

Hi, so the scenario is as follows:

  1. You make a button template component, that has a body shape with fill and border, and a text label.
  2. For that component you add a state - let's say Hover, but any state works the same
  3. You make an instance of the component. You adjust the button width and change the button's label (standard component usecase I suppose?)
  4. You test the hover effect: of course the interaction is applied, but the instance adjustments were not inherited in any way for the instance's states - on hover the button's label changes back to the default placeholder, and the button auto-animates to the master's size.

I suppose the solution is to apply instance modifications to each of the instance's states separately, but that seems like something the component feature should address rather than require the user to do manually for every element.

The new states feature has been especially disappointing with an ongoing app design, where I already have most of the design system established. It was initially logical to me that I could add a Hover state to the component's master and all the instances, across the artboards in the entire prototype would "simply" inherit it, but alas - I found they only show the master's state on hover. Needed to undo all of that since it basically broke the prototype for any kind of use, and I definietely do not have the time to go instance-by-instance and apply all the component edits again.

 

Unless I missed something and am doing this wrong.

Hi All -

 

Apologies for the inconvenience around the effort required to manually change states in component instances.

 

We're actively working on addressing this issue so that changes made to the Default State in an instance would propagate to other states within that instance.

 

Stay Tuned.

 

Thanks,

Sherif

Then this issue is NOT resolved. Please mark OP's post as open or not resolved. Just because an Adobe member answered it over a year ago doesn't  mean it's solved.

I am floored that TWO years later, there is no fix for this and Adobe has the guts to mark is as resolved.

Hey Adobe,
This issue opened in 2019. We are in Dec 2021. 
In my Component , if I change the for example Text in default state, my expectation is that all states will change as well (Hover at least).

The team has been working on this feature for years, under review for years. and the exact same answer you just write... for years. A lot of updates and implementations has been made to the app, but this tiny little think keep me working my projects on Figma. 

Of course I would like to use Adobe XD since all the other apps I use are from Adobe. 

 

I understand development it's not easy... but it's also not true that Adobe it's prioritizing the users on this one.  because so many other things in Uservoice has been moved to backlog, started... but this one? just keep on review forever.

Comic gold. People who need to get things done moved to Figma long ago. I stay subscribed to this thread simply to see how long this issue will play on. If we're still getting these emails in a few years, someone should write a Medium article on it.

Hi Harshika,

 

This is a very time consuming issue. When can we expect an update on this 'feature'?

 

Kind Regards,

Jesus, I'm supposed to manage over 150 icons in a design system. and that grows exponentially as I'm providing my designers with various icon weights and color options via component states. This is such a great library feature. I can only imagine when it comes time for myself to build atoms, molecules, etc. how well this adobe "Design Library" will actually function. I'm SOL as I've been hitting the 20,000 layer warning, and I'm barely scraping the surface on product icons.


= /

 

I can't believe in March 2022 this madness is fostered – AND FOR OVER A YEAR AND HALF. I'm going to have to work with my stakeholders to let them know, This "Bug" or lack of a feature is going to cost so many hours. Right now I'm drawing each icon at 34, 24, 16, and 12 pixels. X's 6 variations = 3 black, and 3 white of each stroke at 1, 2, and 3 pixels. That equates to 24 states, four components for ONE icon. I literally cannot believe that each of these 24 states needs to be hand modified. I need a batch capacity to produce icons at 4 sizes, 6 states, and to maintain integrity back to the main componenet.

Just switch to Figma or another tool. XD is dead at least for 2 years… it’s a hard pill to swallow but you need to accept it at some point. In our company all 30+ designers abandoned XD…

Well friends, it's official. My team and I are moving off XD to Figma. I prefer Sketch and AxureRP but so far Figma has been a very smooth transition from XD. 

 

My reasoning comes down to the fact that I am sick of googling "how do I do __ in XD" and finding out that it's only a Feature REQUEST instead of a real feature. For almost everything I google! This product never should have been released in its current state. You can't just release an unfinished product and then spend the next decade actually building it.

 

Figma seems to be a common tool for teams these days and a lot of the 3rd parties we work with are using it. Very collaborative and smooth so far. Eff you XD, you made my life h*ll for years.

This is such an obvious requirement. I'm tasked with evaluating Adobe XD for a team of 30 designers 7 developers. This is a deal breaker, looking at Figma next

Yeah... Don't do it. Run as fast as you can. Figma has been great for our teams! It's not quite as robust as Sketch or Axure but it's been smooth so far!

There is nothing much to evaluate. Figma is the best tool out there. XD is pretty much dead.

How hasn't this feature been implemented already? Have they lost their minds? They implemented voice interaction but not this? Seriously?
