Hello, Im working on a mobile-friendly website, I created 3 copies of the main canvas, for desktop, tablet and phone. I have many text fields and each time I change something, I have to repeat the process for all canvas.

My question is: is there any way of syncing the text across all canvas? 

(I duplicated the canvas and the text fields by pressing ALT)

Make the first text field component in XD and then duplicate them to the other artboards/canvas. Check the following video to understand how components work in XD -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCICHoZDxhM

Vishu, can this be set up so that a paragraph of copy in the first text field will sync with the others, when it changes? I watched the video you shared, but it only showed style changes, not actual changes to the words.

In this case, you will need to reset all the instances of components then it will reflect the changes done in the text copy.

Vishnu, just to clarify, I'm talking about changing the actual text itself, not the styling or other design formatting. Can it do that?
