LAUNCHED: Show nested properties are when multiple instances of component are selected

Hey @dvaliao. I just tested what you mentioned here: When I expose properties from a nested instance in a component, the nested instance properties show up in design mode, Dev Mode component playground, but not regular Dev Mode when the component gets inspected (as you mentioned). Has this feature been removed again?

Hey David, the Selection Variants plugin by @Gleb might help to a certain extend :slight_smile:

Hey @Papes_Christoph,

It has not been removed. Please reach out to the support team directly via this form for help:

Be sure to use your Figma account email, include a link to the file, and share it with so we can take a closer look.

Hey @daken,

As mentioned above, this was already launched in November 2023.

I don’t think the solution was accurate to what the OP was asking because I’m having the same issue today. zach_ward2 explained it properly above.

Yes, we are aware that nested properties can be exposed now, but when multiple component layers are selected, the nested properties disappear from the side panel.

While these are helpful for some uses, this doesn’t cover the needs for the original issue/post.

When selecting multiple components from a single component set, you aren’t able to adjust nested component properties. You have to select them individually to change them in the properties panel.


Hi! I checked the link and it seems to me that it doesn’t correspond to the question. When I select multiple instances, Figma doesn’t display the properties of the nested instances.

Hey @frolovv,

The option to expose nested instances is available only if a main component:

  • already has an exposed nested instance, or
  • contains nested instances with component properties applied to it

If you don’t see the Nested instances option, try applying a component property to a nested component first.
