Place and replace deletes all connector lines in figma

I’m building out flows in Figma using connector lines that I copied over from FigJam. When I use the place and replace action to swap out one screen with another, all the connector lines connected to that screen also get deleted. I have to manually disconnect each point for each connector line, use the place and replace action, then move the connector lines back to each element. Is there a way to not have the connector lines get deleted if I swap out a screen?

Hey Linda - sorry this is a late reply: can you provide a screen recording of this? I’m trying to visualize this a bit better.
