How do I save text content when creating a nested component?

In my project, there is a component that includes an input field and a label (as a text field). The component is used many times for templates and label text is changed.

Now I need to put the label in the component. But this will reset the label text in all consumer files after updating the component from the library. Is there a way to avoid this?

My plugin Master can do this! Simply select the label, wrap it in a frame (if it’s not wrapped already) and run Master β†’ Create Component from Objects. Master will find all instances of this component in the current file and save overrides in them.

This problem occurs with component consumer files. After the file accepts updates from the library.
