Update interaction wires across symbols / components (keep in sync)
Adding a wire to an object inside a symbol or changing a wire inside a symbol should create/change the same wire/link across other instances of that symbol in the same way styles/text etc changes other instances.
This would allow navigation to be edited throughout a project.
I love the convenience of symbols, and I love that we can now add links to objects within a symbol, but not being able to propagate that interaction to other symbols is a problem for me.
Agree very very loudly

Section where you can set up the navigation bar for your app/website. Ability to add buttons to it (with overlays). Then can be added to the selected artboards. Can also link the buttons to different boards. When things are updated in the navigation section it will update everywhere else.
Completely agree. This is a must-have feature. I'm shocked it hasn't been added already.
Another reason to jump to Sketch...
Could we get a response, Adobe, on why this essential wire copy/paste function apparently disappeared in newer XD versions and when it will be restored? I'm prototyping a case planning-type app for a client who needs something like 120 screens (artboards.) The navigation scheme is complex. I wired up each of more than 70 nav links in a "master nav menu" artboard. I intended to copy and paste the master nav menu from the wired artboard in each of the various screens so consistent navigation is present throughout the app. Without the copy/paste wire ability we're looking at more than 8000 wires that would need creation. If I can't get this feature soon, I'm gone. Thanks in advance for expediting this.

When I integrate overlays into a menu (converted into a symbol), these overlay actions are saved and are included when other instances of the symbol are used.
please yes.... If Im asked to change the navigation options I have to copy and paste across 40 + artboards, a real pain
+1 For the love of God add this feature! So much time wasted prototyping because this isn't already built into XD.

A workaround for this in the meantime is to copy and paste the symbol to other artboards once all the links have been added. It's a clumsy way to do it, but it's better than repeating every single wire.
Yes, please!!! This should be a no-brainer.

Adobe, this is an URGENT request, please!!!
Fernando Nonaka commented
Agree. I can't believe Adobe didn't implemented it yet. This is so basic! It's boring when you change a link in a symbol, and have to copy and paste again in all other artboards.

agree. super important for menus
This is definitely a problem. It definitely adds a lot of time and work for me.
Simeon Rowsell commented
Absolutely required. This is a major hole in my workflow, particularly for things like menus.

The only reason I don't use XD is because hasn't this function, which is basic!!
I add myself to this request, this is a lot of maintenance to handle when you have anything more than a handful of art boards. I get wanting to allow variation based on needs, but my footer links with always link to the same art boards. Making this connection 20-30 times in a prototype is a lot to deal with, especially if I want to make a change.
In Prototype > Destination option, it's too hard to find the artobard I want to link, when the project is too big:
1) It's not in alphabetic order;
2) The combo viewing is very, but very small;
3) Typing the name of the artboard to find it: it returns only the first result with the word I typed, but what if it's not the artboard I'm looking for?
Another feature that I miss: copy and paste the destination to another artboard.
AND when creating symbols, the destination link is not copied. It should copy the link, and if we change that link inside the symbol, all artboards using that symbol could change automactilly.
that's common sense, in symbol mode - link that item only OR link all instances, via "Update All Symbols" simple. - like you need this, example: "A MAIN MENU" - else, guys, your doing great - get to the productivity common sense workflows first - (b)

This is a great feature add! It does take a lot of extra time to go and link manually each symbol (Example navigation bar items) for each page when you could just update the symbol prototype links on one and have it propagate throughout.
