Changing all text within a component at once

Hello! I am attempting to make an interactive component that will allow multiple text boxes to be editable at the same time, displaying the same data. I am new to Figma so I am likely using the wrong terminology…

The desired outcome is a box that will display the date at the foreground, and repeated in the background for emphasis/style. I would like the ability for all four text boxes displaying the date to change with a single edit. Screenshot of component:

Thank you for reading and please let me know if there’s anything more I can add!


  1. Create a component containing the number of text layers you need.
  2. Create and apply the same component text property to all of these text layers.
  3. Create an instance of this component and place it in your layout.
  4. If necessary, change the value in the instance.

Massive. Thank you @tank666
