Moving components between files

I have a component that’s currently in File A. However, I want to move this component to File B so that its instances will now point to File B. How do I do this?

Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s a super easy way to do this. Once you remove the component from File A, all the instances will remain with a note in the right panel that the parent component has been deleted. Once you add the component to File B, you would then have to swap each existing instance to point to the File B component using the Swap Instance functionality in the right panel.

(These instructions are assuming that File B is a library file that is linked to whatever files the instances are in. Not sure if it’s as simple if File B isn’t a library since I don’t have as much experience with that.)
