Tips design system

Hi there! Hope you guys can help me a bit as I need some tips or pointers on how to separate a huge file into several different files: one being a design system foundation library (colors, logo, …), another being the needed atoms/molecules/templates for desktop app (also design system library) and one with all the features/pages that are linked to said libraries. As of yet, everything is within 1 file so not really feasible/workable… If I just copy/paste the elements from one file to the other the master styles and components are still within the original file, and I really would like to avoid relinking hundreds if not thousands of elements/symbols/styles (even with plugins ain’t nobody got time for that).
