Instance of component loses character style

We have a design system distributed as a library - and in the source file all text elements in the components has character styles applied. But when we use theese components in other documents, the character style no longer is applied and you have to go over each text element again and define the character style from the shared library. Otherwise the development link makes no sense at hand-off. I´m pretty sure this has worked before, and now it creates an extreme amount of extra work.

Are someone else experiencing this?

Hi @sofiafloren,

 

Thank you for reaching out. Would you mind sharing a video of your workflow for better understanding? Please also share the version of XD installed and the details of your operating system.

 

I will try my best to investigate and help you

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hi, please see attached file of the scenario. As descibed in text the linked component looses its character style when used in other documents than the source document. I use XD version (51.0.12) and experience the problem on both of my computers (macOS Big Sur 11.4 and Monterey 12.4 )

When on the phone with Adobe Support last week I tried to create a new library just to see if there is any difference but the problem remains. To me it feels like a bug since it has worked before. Hopefully you can help, because this issue destroys the whole idea of a design system.
