Instances not showing in protoype


I didn’t find any information about this exact problem, and even don’t know if it’s a problem or am I doing something wrong:

If I have main components with their instances in the same frame, when I see the prototype in presentation mode, those instances disappear from the prototype. If, for example, I rename an instance or copy/paste it to the same frame, the instances show again in presentation mode… until I refresh that window (prototype) and the instances disappear again.

I have seen similar problems, but in my case it’s not related to:

  • Instances not being nested in the frame or overlapping duplicated frames.
  • Instances with the same name.

If I remove the main component from the frame and use an instance instead, all the other instances show properly on the prototype.

Is that a normal behavior? (so, can’t main components live together with their instances in the same frame and all show properly in presentation mode?)

Thank you.
