Relocating master components
Sometimes you need to reorganize your design system files. Once you have created a master components, you cannot move it to another file, and you are stuck with the current file forever.
It would be great if you can just move your Master Component from one document to another.

I really need this feature to be able to manage my design team

please make this happen

Relocating and be able to duplicate in the same file in order to modify and make versions of them instead of having to redo all states. Please make this happen
This is an absolute must to fix. I am fairly new to Adobe Xd and this is one of the first roadblocks I have come across. So it is an obvious flaw, not just one you come across after months or years of working with the software.

Absence of the feature to relocate the Master Components from one file to a Central file has a capability to bring the Design System erection to standstill. Adobe XD team need to really look into this on priority as there are more enterprise companies taking XD way too serious for their UX n UI crafts.
Yes! This is a pain in the butt when I create a component I like in another document, I often just want to move the location of the master component!
Its a pain for managing multi asset with scattered components!

Well it only makes sense - if you want to create master-style-document then you wan to relocate all master components to be native to the master-style-document, and not scattered across multiple files
It's insane that you can't already do this.

I wholeheartedly, 100% agree. I was just updating an old mockup I did last year, attempting to simplify the mockup for presentation purposes. Everything works fine in the Preview. But as soon as I share a new link, most of my hot spots are missing. Nothing I do can fix this.
I tried saving the file as a new document. The corruption follows goes with it. I tried copying the artwork into a new document, and of course lost all prototype wiring. Now all of the components reside in the previous artwork file. I am now forced to work in a file that links to another, just so I can create a presentation.
Does anyone know if there’s a way to force XD to reset its memory of all prototype wiring?

This needs to be done asap!
This is definitely paramount!
Thanks to all the cool updates, we now have components status and much more, therefore it is almost mandatory to update our design system and rethink it in a smarter way
Please do this, it's such a hassle as now I have to recreate that master component into another file.
Managing components is currently a huge pain point.

That will help a lot our design flow
I need it
