Expose nested instances -> at property level

Maybe you could merge this idea with Hide specific properties from the nested instances on variant property Thanks :pray:


Hi @Dennis_N ,
Thank you for flagging this! I merged with this topic. :slight_smile:


I would also love this feature, it would simplify components and really improve efficiency for our Design System users.

Pleeeeease! This would solve so many headaches I’m currently struggling with as I nest components

Please please, this would be such a game changer for more complex components with subcomponents and nested properties.

Please, everyone coming here with same request/issue, vote the other thread!

Hey @Equinusocio ,
Thank you for noticing it! I merged this topic with the other thread, so we can have all the feedbacks and votes in the same place. :slight_smile:



This feature is really a must-have! I try to workaround by adding Stop-Emojis in the property name, so that users of the design system won’t change the nested property. Much better it would be, if we could hide unwanted properties in the parent component.

+1 must have for atom > molecule > organism based component nesting

+1 - such a mess without this

The need for this is such a no brainer.

So many upvotes and comments and still not a hint of solving this :frowning:
It’s a must-have! We use slots and master components a lot and this heavily affects usage of our components.

Please Figma, just copy paste and ship this please. Zoltan already did the work for you :pray:

Love that properties from nested components are available.

Unfortunately when designing object oriented components it becomes a huge pain to see many unnecessary properties that should remain untouched. Also creates clutter.

Curious what the Figma team thinks the best solution is.

I guess what we need is a setting for each property of a component to allow it to be listed or not in parent components.

But maybe there are better ways. I trust them to come up with something brilliant.

+1, we need this :pray:

Honestly, cant wait to have this feature, this is such a drawback for a big design system!

Look at this beautiful variant, the only thing is the size that has repeated from the exposed nested variants 3 times.


+1 this is a blocker for our team to establish functional product templates to increase production. This would create a massive amount of efficiency for our team.

Would really help to have this for more complex patterns that I’m adding in to our design system also.

+1 - I have several instances where this would clean up the sidebar for designers and improve the usability of complex components.

+1 - This is something we really need
