      So, the problem I am trying to solve is
      Copy and Paste a GROUP of symbols with a object inside which has links to different pages (meaning each symbol in the group is connected to a different artboard)
      Expected Result: Wire link remains in newly pasted group
      Actual Result: Wire link is removed in newly pasted group

      Ideally I want to be able to grab an entire group that is prototyped to different artboards. As of right now, I have to grab each symbol individually to keep the prototyping.

      Installed update this morning but the issue hasn't been resolved. Working on a project with linking over 40 screens and being able to copy/paste the same navigation to each screen is crucial. Please fix ASAP! (Mac)

      Sam issue on Mac. It seems that copy and paste in prototype mode works if you only do one object instance with link, anything more and it doesn't keep the interaction links...

      Can't copy+paste 2 or more interaction from artboard to artboard at prototype mode, pls help, before update still working, thanks.

      Copying linked items, such as a navigation bar, in prototype mode to other artboards no longer copies the interactions.

      Same issue.

      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.

      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 :)
