Editing a master component removes all overrides in components on artboards

Unfortunately the last time I had XD open and made edits, I didn't notice this bug. Which means I saved it and now have to REDO a ton of screens. It also meant for a very confused call with our founder, as many screens didn't make sense (understandably so).

 

When I edit the master component - change colour of the text, move an icon for more padding, it removes the overrides in all the instances of that component in my document. This means I have to go through each screen and re-type the text of every button, list, etc. I expect that as a minimum the text override should stay, or else whats the point of components for anything other than buttons?

 

I just updated XD and it didn't help.

Well, instances should maintain the overrides if you have modified the instances when you change the master components. We are unable to view the video you have posted due to some forum platform issues... I request you to upload the video to youtube as unlisted and then share the link here so that we can view the video and understand the bug your facing with components.

Unfortunately all the overrides completely reset to the original master. It doesn't matter what I change in the master, everything in the instances will reset.

 

Here's the video example of just changing the colour of the text:

This is weird behavior...because I test this in my XD and work the way it should not like yours. Is it happing only with this master component or all the master components?
