Helllo, the problem is...

Exemple: i have 4 documents, in each documents i have many diferents master components. I want to move all the master components from the differents documents to a new document (new document just for a master components) to organaise the work. 

If i do copy the masters components from the old documents and i move to the new document for a master components, paste and make it as a local component, i'll lose the link of each master component with their soon oweride components it had in the document it was. 

How i can do to move the master component to the new document but keeping the link of the soon components it have in the old document?

Thanks.

Hi, unfortunately there is no way to do it. Because of this I'm used to work with several files opened at once - one for master components and another for my design itself.There is a workaround, but only to separate master components from an actual design for each file at a time (separately):1 - Switch your design to Prototype mode, select all (Ctrl+A), copy (Ctrl+C)2 - Create a new file, switch it to Prototype mode and paste (CTRL+V) - it will paste all your design (with all actions) and make a...

Hi, unfortunately there is no way to do it. Because of this I'm used to work with several files opened at once - one for master components and another for my design itself.

There is a workaround, but only to separate master components from an actual design for each file at a time (separately):

1 - Switch your design to Prototype mode, select all (Ctrl+A), copy (Ctrl+C)

2 - Create a new file, switch it to Prototype mode and paste (CTRL+V) - it will paste all your design (with all actions) and make all components linked to the original file.

3 - Delete your design from original file.

This way you will have a separate file with master components for each of your designs. I know this is not what you were asking for, but this is the closest you can get.
