Hide component properties

Would love the option to hide component props from consumers. For instance:

Component A

  • Nested component B
  • Nested component C

Component A is made up of two nested components, B and C. Components B and C have properties that are adjusted to provide variants of Component A. They’re really just for my use.

But if a designer “clicks in” to Component B, for instance, they can see its props, in the right sidebar (which I’ve used primarily to make those Component A variants). I don’t want them to touch the props for that nested Component B. I’d like to hide them.

I heard rumors that this might be an upcoming feature. Is this true? :thinking:


Would also be highly interested in this. Would make things much easier for the consumers of our enterprise Design System.

Hi all,
Thank you for your feedback! I switched this topic to a “Feature request”, so you can vote and we can accurately gauge interest from the community!


This is very useful when using nested instances and I would love to have this feature as well.

Bumping! This would really elevate design systems

Yess please. Im working with Interactive components and this feature would be very useful for my design system. I have different size variants of a spinning loader with their own prop Small, Medium, Large. Ive added the loop animation steps for each variant however they require a prop else I get the conflicting error thing. I dont want to give it a prop so hiding component props would fix this.


I am having this exact issue currently. Would love to know a workaround.

Please help with this functionality, I remember that when I was working with Sketch they have it and it helped the designers a lot and to maintain consistency in the DS and in the designs and that was about 3 years ago aprox.
