trait X1[A] {
  def x1: A => A
object X1 {
  implicit def X2[A]: X2[A] = new X2[A] {
    override def x2: A => A = identity
    override def x1: A => A = identity

trait X2[A] extends X1[A] {
  def x2: A => A

object X {
  implicit def toX12[A](self: X.type)(implicit x: X1[A]): x.type = x

object example extends App {
  def x1[A: X1](a: A) = {
  def x2[A: X2](a: A) = {


X.x2(a) call to compile, but got an error message:

Error:(26, 7) value x2 is not a member of object X

Note that the example works in dotty 0.20 as expected:


Explicitly listing creating prioritized conversions for all subtypes of X1:

object X extends LowPriorityX {
  implicit def toX1[A](self: X.type)(implicit x: X1[A]): X1[A] = x
trait LowPriorityX {
  implicit def toX2[A](self: X.type)(implicit x: X2[A]): X2[A] = x
