"Use it as a new Master Component" feature
After releasing "State" feature, it's been able to prepare complex interactions like "hover." Following feature may help to reduce required time preparing a new component with similar behaviors/instructions.
New component with state settings every time when a similar behavior is expected in different look and feel.
(Currently, preparing another XD file is believed to be the only solution to avoid this by selecting "Make it as local component" after loading it from another XD file.")
By select "Use it as a new Master Component" is to make a new Master component instead of copying it as an instance component.
◆ Why is this valuable to you?
When using a single, new XD file and load a master component from other XD files, it is possible to make it "local component"; however, it is unable to make it happen within the same XD file.
This helps to reduce time to prepare a set of basic state setting from the beginning each time. This also helps NOT to get affected unconsciously on the new component by editing the template master component by someone else.
Since Co-Editing feature is now beta version, some larger project may have a couple of co-editors of components on the same XD file in the future. While a group of designers keeps upgrading a basic behaviors for future use, another group of designers is working on on-going project to finalize a specific look and feel based on the template component.
