Paste component to all artboards
If a component is shared across all artboards (e.g. a navigation or toolbar), it would be helpful to be able to paste it on all (or multiple) artboards in one go. It would save a lot of time, compared to having to paste it manually every time
Thanks! I was able to reproduce on my side and have filed a bug about this.
Attached a file illustrating this. Go into the prototype mode of this file. Control + C the top header navbar on the very first artboard named Navbar.
Then clear your selection and shift + click the name of the 2nd, 4th, and 5th art boards so they're selected (Home Page, Dashboard, and Courses respectively). I select art boards in this way vs marquee select so that may be a factor. Anyways, Ctrl + V to paste that component and observe that it will only paste on the Home Page board and that the link for "EXAMPLE" is cleared out.
This seems to be broken. It used to work such that you could paste across multiple artboards in prototype mode but it no longer does so. Even if you have multiple artboards selected, it will only do it for the first artboard selected.
Design view does paste it across all of the artboards, but then you lose all the links in the process.
Edit: Hmm, this seems to work again now - I had to restart XD though. There seems to be an underlying bug that's causing this to work intermittently. In my case, I had been using undo/redo quite a bit so it may be related. Not the first time I've seen something not work all of a sudden that was cleared up on a restart of XD!
Edit 2: Actually, seems even worse than that. Now it's not working anymore even after restarting. And when you do paste in this way and it pastes to only the first board, it loses some of the links. I've saved off an XD project illustrating this that i'll attach to my next comment with instructions for repro.
