Can I move multiple private components to a library in one go?

I just finished moving our core icon library to Figma (5000+ icons) and I noticed only a small portion of them can be added as a shared libary.

The rest are private to the main file, and are NOT using the “.” or “_” notation. The naming convention is completely normal, so I’m not sure why they are considered private.

But from what I can tell, I would need to click on every single individual icon and “Add to library” which is not in the cards right now. Is there a way to select all of the private components and move them in one go?


Try to add . or _ to the name and then remove it, I don’t know for sure but this might override this setting.
