Pasting a linked component to another file removes overrides

I have a master cloud document and 2 other documents (A and B) with linked assets to the master.

If I make overrides to a linked component in doc A and then pasted it into doc B, the overrides reset.

How do get linked components to maintain their overrides when pasting between documents?

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I tried reproducing this on Windows 10 and XD 28.8 and was unable to replicate. Will it be possible for you to share a small video of the workflow and what exactly is happening at your end? I would also request you to share the version of Adobe XD and the Operating System.

 

Regards

Rishabh

I have a similar problem.

 

Adobe XD version 30.2.12

 

On my Test Library I have a component like a menu that I later use in File B. In File B I'm going to override few simple things in the component (instance) that I just mention. For this example let's say the background of the first element is grey. At this point I want to KEEP the overrides and copy that instance from File B back into library, as an instance.

 

The result is that the overrides are lost.

 

Another simple test you can do is:

  1. Create a component
  2. Somewhere else on the SAME file use that component
  3. Apply some overrides
  4. Copy the instance of the component that has those overrides into a new file --> overrides are all good and still there
  5. Now, cmd+c or ctrl+c the instance with the overrides from the new file and paste it into the old file --> overrides are lost
