Need a way to duplicate master component
It would be great to have a way to duplicate a master component - create a copy within assets panel. If I have a component that has several states and I need to make a dark mode version of that component, I would like to just duplicate that component and make my changes instead of having to recreate it from scratch as a master component.
I literally can't believe this hasn't been implemented yet. I found a half decent work around, but its not the best.
1. You copy the component to another document
2. Right-Click the asset and select "reveal component in "assets"
3. Right-click the component in the assets panel and select "make local component"
4. then click the Pencil/Edit State button in the component panel on the top left, this will generate the "master" component of the copied component.
5. copy this new master back over to your original document.
This works perfectly only one layer of component. If you have components inside of components, they will probably get a bit messed up. But it still might save you some time.
I heard little details are the product. It seems you did not have to create a design system without this feature. I am about to break my computer everytime I need to create a new component based on a previous one.. Please hear our voices.

And here we are again waiting for genie to grant our 4th wish. Was it the 3rd or 4th, I can't remember.
How is this not a thing?

Please, we need this feature implemented!
This feature is so useful, a +1! I'm agreed, it's not efficient to rebuilding from scratch a component and so annoying..
C. Lockeby commented
Here's another +1 for this idea. Ungrouping and rebuilding all states isn't an efficient workflow!
Evangelion Netai commented
yes pleaseeee need
James Duffield commented
Having to recreate all states on a new component is a real pain. This is 100% needed.
Mirek Ždímal commented
+ 1 for a master component duplication method

Just ran into this again.
It is really important - the use case I have is that I have an alternative navigation on some screens and now I have to rebuild the whole nav component...

Please work on this Adobe, this would be a major time saver. It's frustrating to have to remake a component that has multiple states.
Tony Ward Arts commented
Absolutely my #1 need right now! Please make it happen... Working on my own website design and this is crucial.
Max Zin commented
Yes please much needed!!!!
Jake Spillar commented
Thoughts and prayers this becomes a thing.

Please add this! It's such a hassle to have to redo from scratch very similar components and it sounds like such a simple feature. It would speed by a lot my design process.

Dido, this would be great! Creating a form library and for every form element have to recreate focus/disabled states a lot of extra tedious work involved. In addition, would be nice to be able to sort the states so you can edit rearrange and to make them consistent.
