I want to be able to right-click on an instance of a component and choose "Copy location" so that I can paste that location in another component instance

I use slots very often in my job, as I’m sure many do. I spend at least 30 minutes a day navigating the “Swap instance” UI. It would be great if I could copy the location from a nearby instance and paste it into the slot.

Thanks in advance, sorry if this is too esoteric… :pray:

I think you can achieve this with my plugin Master: pick the target instance, then link the slot object to the target instance (basically copy & paste).

That said Figma doesn’t have the concept of slots natively and it’s definitely a super limiting environment using workarounds like this. Here is a suggestion you can vote for to make this a reality: Fully Editable Component Instances

You’re a beast, Gleb :v:
