Duplicate component

  • First, select and hold CRTL or Command + C to copy the component frame.
  • Past your component with CRTL or Command + V .

At this point, you’ve created an instance of the component.

  • Next, select the Component Instance and head to the right-hand sidebar.

  • Go to the Instance section and hit the three dots icon.

  • In the drop-down menu, select Detach Instance.

  • Now, go to the center top-bar menu and hit the Create component icon.

  • Go to the assets tap in the left-hand sidebar to preview your duplicated component.

Duplicate multiple component

  • Select all the components you want to duplicate and hold CRTL or Command + C to copy.
  • Now, hit CTRL or COMMAND + V to past.

For now all we’ve done is creating instances of our components.

  • Next, let’s select all our Components Instances and go to the right-hand sidebar.
  • Go to the Instance section and hit the three dots icon.

  • In the drop-down menu, select Detach Instance.

  • Now let’s create multiple components by selecting ****all the buttons frames, then head to the top-bar menu and hit the arrow besides the Create component icon.
  • In the drop-down menu, select Create multiple components.

  • Go to the assets tap in the left-hand sidebar to preview your duplicated component.
