Copying components revert them to master state

Hi Adobe, 


Attaching the video file for reference will be a lot easier to understand but I'm trying to explain the whole scenario.

 

While working on a project I usually create a design system and the XD file is used as a library by other members of my team. Since the Co-Editing feature is still in beta and not reliable (might be because of network issues) my team divides parts of a project.

Recently, we've been using components and nested components extensively. When we want to combine the project let's say 5 screens from member A 5 from member B, the copying doesn't work properly.


Any edits made to the components lets say the change in a text is reverted to master state when the file is artboard is pasted in the original file. 

please find the next points to clearly follow my process.

  1. Create a New File A
  2. Create a master Component X (rectangle+text+icon) in File A
  3. Create a New File B
  4. Use File A as a library for File B.
  5. Use Component X in the File B and change the text.
  6. Copy the Component X from File B to File A.

 

You'll notice any changes you've done to the Component X in file B will be lost in File A.

I'm attaching the video, for the sake of forum I've reduced the quality because the video was long so that it just gets understood but if you cannot see because of the quality please reply I'll post the higher quality version.

 

 

Adobe XD version -  28.8.12.1
Creative Cloud Sync -
 4.3.42.4

Hi there,

 

We're so sorry to hear about the trouble. We have logged a bug and the Team is working on it. We'll update the discussion as soon as we have an update, meanwhile, we'll really appreciate your patience with us.

 

Regards

Rishabh

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. This can be reproduced on our end as well. I tried one more thing, if I copy the component from file B to a new file, then it's not happening. I am checking this with a team and will get in touch with you if we need any further details.

 

Regards

Rishabh

Hi Rishabh

Any update on this? This has been happening for quite a while now and is impossible to work like this. 

Do you have any update?

Thanks

Hello everyone, I'm working with version 31.0.12.23 and this is still an issue. 

My workaround is the following:

Duplicate the artboard on File B, and then ungroup all components on that copy. So, you'll have "Artboard 1" and "Artboard 1-2" with the ungrouped components. Copy that one to File A.

You'll still have the components on "Artboard 1" in File B, untouched, to copy to File A once this is solved. 😕

But these won't be linked to master components. You will have to make new components from the unlinked components. This isn't the solution.

I have several elements simply disappear when I paste between documents. I assume this is related to the master components (maybe the master version had less info so it's just pasting blank). 

I think I found a way around it in the past, but nothing seems to be working now. Extremely frustrating! I pulled artboards out to work on separately without damaging the original file. Now they are useless because I can't paste them into the prototype!

I have not previously seen this issue before but in some XD file I noticed that componets have reverted back to thier master state in a linked document without resetting them.

 

For example if I have created a file and populated it with compoents and then made another file where I copied componets from the first file and then altered the compoents in the second file (eg changed the text) I have noticed that some compoents in the second file have reverted back to the master state without reseting to master state or editing anything in the file. Please let me know if anyone else has been having this issue or know what I might have done to make this happen.

We have a bunch of libaries/files that are linked together so that soultion would not be ideal for our workflow. If we update something in one file we would like those changes to carry over into other files aswell.

I thought I am the only one.. this has been persisting from June 2020!
My teams created a "master" Adobe XD file for our final designs, linked to each of our own local XD files, where our teams individually edit or create their design versions based on the linked master components we shared. 

I hope Adobe fixes this soon.

 

EDIT: I think they have made a megathread here of your same problem? :

I might have found the problem and solution. 

Currently I am working on a Dashboard Design. I have a left menu that contains a component called Dashbord Tab that applies to all menu items. When I tried to copy the left menu from one file to another, I had the same issue — all menu items reset to the master state of Dashbord Tab. Then I realised that each file I tried to copy the left menu to, had a local component called Dashbord Tab (I probably unlinked it at some point). 

 

The solution for me was to remove the duplicate local component from the target file before copy/paste from the source file. Here is an example of copy/paste before and after removing the local (duplicate) component:

Artboard – 10.jpg

I hope it helps.

Hi Harshika 

 

This didn't fix the bug.. It's very difficult to work with this because you literally have to redo your work every time you need to change things from one document to another. 

Are you looking into this bug? When can we expect news on it? 

 

Thanks

Hi Rishabh,

The Component issue is really creating a problem in website development.

We as a team are working on multiple pages of a website with all the master Components set in a main file.

Since the main file is heavy we are working on local computers and when we Paste the files in the main file the Components are getting reset. Its really hampering the progress of our Website UI design.

Please help.
