Restore library links in files from restored library

We deleted a shared library by accident that was used in many files. We successfully restored the library file, but all links in all design files was not restored. Is there any way to restore the library linkt in the files that was using the shared library that we by accident deleted and then restored?

Did you publish the library? Unless you detached instances somehow, they should start pointing back to the library once you publish it, as long it’s the same library and not another file with different components.

Seems to be working, will validate full on. Thanks for the quick answer!

Hannes, how did you restore your library?

All deleted files go to Drafts → Deleted.

Yes, I checked there but it does not show. I was using branches. I deleted the branch and it deleted the original file as well as the branch. :grimacing:

In this case this might be a serious issue in #branching-beta, you may want to create a topic there and alert the engineers.
