Copy Paste Symbol in Prototype mode does not paste nested wire links - Windows
XD v 22.214.171.124
Copy and Paste a Symbol with a object inside which has a link to another page - to another page.
Expected Result: Wire link remains in newly pasted symbol
Actual Result: Wire link is removed in newly pasted symbol
Worked before new update but not now. Works on my colleagues mac but not my Windows 10.
PLEASE FIX IMMEDIATELY
Thanks for continuing to share your feedback!
The team is actively working on a fix to be made available ASAP.
In the meantime, here are some things to note:
1. Copy/paste interactions from an item should still work as expected
2. To retain interaction from your nested item within group or symbol, ALT+drag to copy
3. If you have a Paid Creative Cloud account, installer for XD 7.0 is available. Note that any files saved in XD 8 cannot be opened in XD 7.
Sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

Like Nina's way 2, we can copy objects with interactions by
Cmd+D (Ctrl+D for Win users)
When I select various objects on prototipe mode and copy and paste in other artboard the objects doesnt "stay linked".

As mentioned in another thread, this is suddenly a problem in the May 2018 release. It was working fine in the previous version.
I have the same issue on windows 10 and i miss it a lot. :(

I'm experiencing the same problems. I'm on a fully updated Windows 10 laptop, with the May release of XD.
Here is a ticket specifying what used to be possible: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13041930-copy-paste-should-preserve-interaction-wires-links

In this release (Adobe XD v8.x), it starts to occur that some interaction problems.
When copy and paste object, it doesn't inherit interaction in the following situations.
- When I select and copy multi objects, then they are copied without interaction.
- When I select any group object including more than one interactive element, then the inside interactive elements are copied without interaction.
I could do them in the past XD, I remember.
Kindly research and fix.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
You can copy your links through select + drag for the meantime. I hope this will help you guys :)
Same issue I've encountered after today's update. Please fix :)

Actually this DOES NOT WORK on my colleagues Mac after update.
The same issue is happening in mac too, after installing the new update.
