Be able to inherit the “export settings” defined in the component in its instances

Hey!

I have made some images of a component exportable. However, this seems not to be reflected in the images of the component instance. Does anyone else experience this?

There are several reasons why I thought that integrating the “export settings” into the component structure could be beneficial: reliability (if we change the component’s settings it will be reflected in its instances), easy to use and faster (people don’t have to copy and paste the settings into its instances).

Best,
Costanza
