In the design system file, I have a bunch of icons that I've turned into components so that I could have different states rather than duplicating the icons (e.g. default is blue, hover is darker blue, alternate state is white, etc.)
When I initially copy and paste the icon from the design system (1) to the blank file (2), the component comes over nicely with all of the states. However, as soon as I update the master component in the design system file and then accept the updates in the new file, it updates the default state of the linked component but removes all the other states.
Thank you for reaching out. I am unable to reproduce the same at my end on windows machine and the states remain after accepting the updates. Would you mind sharing a short video of your workflow for a better understanding? Are both the files saved locally? Please share the OS and XD version of your machine.
