Create master component outside of variant section

Hello, I duplicated a file which displays different style buttons created with variants. However, I noticed that the master component is not inside the variant section but independent of it. See pic below.

My question is, how do I create a master component that sits outside the variant section that when altered, it will simultaneously change all buttons inside the variant section.

Thanks in advance.

Create a master button component like btn-base. Create an instance of this component. From this instance you make a new component, for example, btn-variants. Create variants from btn-variants.

Structure: btn-variants ⟩ btn-base ⟩ btn-label.


Thanks a lot! I understand how it works now. Can’t believe how simple it was lol
