Choose different default values for instance swap property

Hi! Currently adding an instance swap property to a variant set element requires this element to have the same value in every variant (same instance, with the same properties if it is itself a variant).

It would be nice to be able to have multiple default values. For example, in a variant that has light and dark theme variations:

  • The light variants will have light elements as default instance value
  • The dark variants will have dark elements (the same) as default instance value

A workaround is to create a different property (“Choose Instance (Light)” and “Choose Instance (Dark)” for example), but it’s limited. Styles overrides are possible in default values, why not properties/instance overrides?

Have you seen preferred values when exposing an instance swap property? They allow you to do exactly what you describe

Hi Pavel, no that’s not what I’m looking for. Preferred values are amazing to narrow down user options in instances.

What I’m looking for is a way to have multiple default values of the nested instance in the master.
