It's now impossibile to duplicate a Sketch page keeping the same hotspots

If I duplicate a page in Sketch, or copy and paste some screens linked between each other, the links keep pointing to the original screens and not to the duplicated ones. 

For example: I copy the page A and rename it as page B. All screens in page B keep linking to page A. 

This is a new behavior, before it was possibile to copy and past screens keeping the links. Now it's impossible to duplicate a prototype without recreate all links - it's mad!

Is there a different way to duplicate links?

Hi Sara,

So sorry to hear that you're running into issues with your links/hotspots not duplicating. To get a better idea of what might be causing this, can you please provide some additional information?:

  1. What version of Sketch do you have installed? Sketch > About & Registration…
  2. Do you know if your links/hotspots were created using Sketch or Craft? Sketch (created with the H key) links are yellow and Craft (created with the C key) links are blue. 
  3. What version of Craft Manager are you using?
  4. From my understanding, this was working for you before, correct? If so, when did you notice this issue starting to occur?
  5. Can you please provide a screencast or screenshots showing how a step-by-step process of how these pages and hotspots are being created and duplicated? 
  6. At what point in the process are you noticing that your links/hotspots are not duplicated?

I did also want to mention that we're currently tracking interest for the ability to duplicate or copy/paste a hotspot within the same screen or to another screen in a different prototype. If this sounds like what you're trying to do, please let me know.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Today I received a Craft update that risolve the problem, so I suppose that was a bug. I noticed the problem on 7th of May, but today is running correctly.
