Can't resize width of component in local file

I’ve made a dropdown component and variants with auto layout. I have tried building it many different ways…

Example:

overall frame is set to: hugs content
dropdown container is set to: fixed width because
placeholder and caret are set to: fill container
Caret: hugs content
placeholder copy: fill container
label: fill container

Everything functions fine in terms of increasing width of dropdown while i’m editing in design library file but when I go to my local file and pull one from my asset panel—I cannot adjust the width. It is like it’s completely locked.

Is this a problem with auto layout?? When i built them before without as many auto layout layers they were adjusting fine.

I feel like I have tried everything. Can someone please tell me how to build this thing correctly :frowning:

THANK YOU!!!
