Keep text editable when converted to a component
XD v 126.96.36.199.
I converted a button into component. Duplicated the component, and went to edit the text on the next button, and it was no longer editable. The text became a shape when converted to a component.
Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but seems important.
It looks like your text was converted to a path at some point in time, which isn’t the default case. Could you have accidentally hit Cmd+8?

No I didn’t convert it into a path. I selected all text and converted it into a symbol, which automatically made the text a path.
