Bind properties of sub components

I have a main component that has several instances of a sub component in it.
The sub component has several properties. I can expose these. but I am looking for a way to have the main component have the same property, and flipping that would flip the same property on all sub ones. A kind of property binding really.

A really simplified example attached: the main has 5 sub id components. On the main, I would like to set 1 property to ‘icon’ so all the subs change into icon mode. Is something like this possible?

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out! It seems that this feature isn’t currently offered by Figma. However, I’ll confirm with our team internally and get back to you if there’s any information or updates I can provide.


Thank you!
Is there any other design strategy I can follow here? I often have a situation where I want to place things in a child component, because it will probably require changes in the future. And when you have multiple such childs in a parent it really becomes a hassle.
