Comments: Maintain Association When Duplicating or Branching

As a UX designer, I want to keep my comments and designs together when I copy+paste designs between files, duplicate a file, or branch a file so that I can give my engineering stakeholders their desired designs before the comment’s updates are made.

Does anyone know of a workaround for ‘missing comments when moving frames between Figma files’?

Currently, I do one of the following -

  1. make the ‘comment update need message’ before copying it to the new file
  2. manually copy each ‘comment update need message’
  3. take a screenshot of the comment and paste it into the new file

Happy New Year all…and ‘let’s be careful out there.’
