I'm using the new convert sketch library in XD to import all the different libraries i have. While I appreciate the ability to add states, it has one major flaw.
I cannot create a new symbol from an existing symbol that already has the states i want in it.
A good example of this is my button system. See screenshot for how it exists in sketch now.
Basically i have 20 different types of buttons (this is an enterprise design system) each with 2 different sizes (big and small) and each of those button types comes in 5 states:
Default, hover, focus, active, and disabled.
In XD with states right now I imported the buttons in and i have to recreate each of those states for all 40 button types. Each time i create a new symbol i have to add the 5 states manually and type in the titles of those 5 states manually and then copy and past in colors and text styles manually. It's soooooo slow.
I would like the ability to either copy states to new symbol (at least the names maybe) but i would also like to create a new symbol from an existing symbol so that i can even preserve the contents of those states to make the minor tweaks needed for each new symbol.
Again, I feel this is especially relevant to those people who want to convert their design systems to XD. Thanks!
