You can use any of these options to edit a master component:
I'm pretty new to adobe xd and already loving it! However, I came across this issue and been struggling to resolve it myself with no luck. Here's what's happening...
I've created a component which has one text element and a box and I've created dozens of instances using this. I realised I need to add another text field to the component and I decided to edit the master component and type some text. However this doesn't get added to the existing component. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated.
PS: In the screenshot below, I need the value text field to be part of the text input component but I'm not allowed to move it and group with the rest of the component items.

Here is a guide to edit master component
I've already followed the first step and tried to add a new text field into the existing component but it doesn't seem to work as the text field just doesn't get grouped with other bits.
Double-click on the component to put it into edit mode. Select the Text tool and click in the component and type the text. This will get added to the component. If you add it to the default state, it will appear in all of the states but if you add it to another state, it will only appear in that state. The mistake most people make is that after double clicking on the component to put it into edit mode, they'll click off of it effectively deselecting the component and then whatever you add will not get added to the component.
Many thanks Chad - double clicking did work.
