    Changing text in a symbol instance

      Hi there

       

      I was just wondering if there is a way of editing the text in a symbol instance without it being updated in all the instances. So basically a way of decoupling the content of a symbol from its styling.

       

      As a practical example: I have a button with some background color, some specific font size and color and a button text. I’m saving the button as a symbol, then placing in multiple places on the design. However, although I still want to be able to edit the style unitarily (changing the color -  updates everywhere) I would like to be able to change the text individually on every instance (a button to say “ok”, other “Accept”, other “I Agree” etc.)

       

      I think I saw something similar in the Beta presentation but I doesn’t show if all the instances change or only one changes and how to do that.

       

      Thanks.
