Is it possible to re-arrange the order of layers when using instances of a component?

I have an ordered list, which I am re-using across multiple pages in Figma. So I have created the list as a component and have instances of that component.

Depending on what screen that instance is used on, the order of the menu items needs to change. If this wasn’t a component, I would be able to easily re-arrange the order of the layers. However, when editing an instance the option to re-order layers isn’t there :frowning_face:

Is there a way to do this easily? Or is there another way I should be doing this? I basically want one component which covers everything so I don’t have to update the content in multiple places when it gets updated.
