Hello, so a pretty frustrating thing happened when I updated to the latest version of XD.

All of the previous symbol links are destroyed, likely due to the updates to the symbol system (now components).

Is there a way to restore those links?

I have 150+ screens between two projects that used linked symbols and editing them in my master symbol file was a huge boon for me, now none of that works. Now if I right click a component in the design files and edit in source, it generates a new component in the master symbol file I have, which isn't very helpful at all. If I edit anything in the symbol master file, the design files do not recognize that the master symbol (component now) has changed because the link has been severed.

Hi Emmanuel -

I'm a Product Manager on the Adobe XD team and I would love to investigate that issue a little to bit more to help you resolve it.

Could you please share with me your source document and the design file and the XD logs that has that issue to assaf@adobe.com

How to use the Creative Cloud Log Collector tool

Thanks a lot Emmanuel.
