Copying Component Doesn't Create New Instance

Small piece of feedback after testing out Interactive Components. Ordinarily, I’m able to create a new instance of a component by copying-and-pasting it. This is nice when I’m creating components on-the-fly, as I can then quickly add them into my design.

If I copy-and-paste an Interactive Component, it creates a brand new, identical component, rather than an instance of that component. Would be nice to see this fixed so that it behaves the same as a normal component.

Thanks!
