Edited instance text won't appear in prototype?

I’ve created a variant for an accordion menu with open & closed states but can’t seem to get the edited-text in the open-menu state to show in prototype-mode.

Changing the text DOES work until I add more words than that of the Master Component (i.e. “Content” vs. changing it to a bulleted list of text). The only way I’ve managed to get the bulleted-list to show in prototype-mode is to have the menu already set to the “open” state, which defeats the purpose of an accordion/drop-down menu.

The attached photo shows my variant, along with some of the settings of the text-field I’m having troubles with.
