Changes published in library are not updating component instances in other files that use the library

Hi there,

We have a team library with components, and other project files using instances of these components. When publishing changes to the master component in the source file (library) we stopped receiving the “Review and accept library updates” notification in other project files and obviously component instances were not updating.

Yesterday (17.01.2023), this notification was appearing but the changes were still not applied in component instances in other files.

This is an important issue, as all our work relies on the libraries working properly. Urgent help would be appreciated.


UPDATE: I tried solution #3 from this thread and it is still not working.

I have the same exact issue. I’ve update the main component but my instance component in other files does not change and also the properties in the component is the old version

I am also seeing this issue. The layers within in the main component are changed but it doesn’t show in the children not in the origin file.

Hey All,

To try to repair the connection with the components and the library can you please try the following:

  1. Open the file with the instance with the issue and select the instance
  2. In the top left click the main menu and click ‘Quick Actions’
  3. Search the command “repair component connections” and click this to run this command
  4. Once complete refresh the page, then try publishing a new change and check if the update shows in the file

I have tried this back then too, it didn’t work. However, Figma released an update to fix the issue I was talking about, and apparently not only me. It is working fine now.
