Importing pages into library: Manually changed format on widget reverts to applied widget style format

Currently, I have to convert a team project into a team library.
I do so by creating a new team library and using File > Import from RP file
I import everything including widget styles.

This works very well except for one issue:
Widgets were the style has been changed from the applied widget style without creating a new widget style revert back to the properties of the widget style upon import.
(Changed styles without a widget style are indicated by star behind the applied widget style).

E.g. I have a rectangle that has widget style “Rectangle” which has a border of 0 pt. Manually the border of the rectangle has been changed to 1 pt.
If I now import a page that contains the rectangle widget into a new library file, then the rectangle will revert to the widget style “Rectangle” settings with a border of 0 pt.
What I would need is that the rectangle remains with a border 1 pt that as it has been manually applied to the rectangle in the team project.

Is there any way to achieve that?

Side note: I tried this with non-team project files and in Axure 8, but behavior was always the same.

Hi janschulze!

I’ve tested out importing standard and team project files into a team library in Axure RP 9, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to reproduce this behavior with widgets’ custom styles. If you haven’t done so already, please ensure that you’re running the latest build for Axure RP 9 by navigating to Help > Check for Updates. If the issues still persists when running the latest build, please send along the following information:

  • What operating system are you using?

  • To clarify, does this only happen when importing a team project file into a team library, or does it occur in other circumstances where team projects are not used?

  • If possible, please send along a sample of the file being imported and the library being updated. If you would prefer not to share these on the forum, please email us at with these files so that we can continue investigating the issue there.

Thank you!

Hi Chelsea,

thank you very much for your help!

I am using Windows 10 and my Axure 9 is up to date.

I recently converted the rpteam file from Axure 8 to 9.
I also tried importing the Axure8 RP into a new library in Axure 8 but have the same issue.
I also tried importing a non-team rp into a non-team library in both Axure 8 and 9 and have the same issue.

I now tried reproducing the issue I am having with a fresh rp and rplib in Axure 9. Like you, I couldn’t reproduce it in that way. The changed styling of a rectangle (border = 0 with the connected style remaining set as default border = 1) was correctly imported into the new library file.

However, so that you may be able to reproduce, I cut a tiny part from my problematic rp file:
import rp into library.rp (127.1 KB)

When I import this RP into a new library, the inner rectangle changes from border 0 in rp to border 1 in rplib. Or the other way around when I import all widget styles: Outer rectangle changes from border 1 to border 0.

Could you check if this also happens for you?

Many thanks!

Hi Chelsea, could you look into this issue again? Thank you!
