Nested instance properties for batch editing

I really love “nested instance properties” feature but it works for one component instance only. It would be useful if nested instance properties were available when I select several “parent” instances.

My example
:hammer_and_wrench: Component structure:

  1. component Label - used for different statuses - has text property Label for text inside 2) component Table Cell - used for building tables - has variants for different types of cells
    Case: I create column of statuses in the table, it includes cells which include label. If I want to update text in one label I can use nested label’s text property. But when I want to update text in several cells nested instance property disappears and I need to select label instead of cells or use some plugin for bulk text update.

PS: thanks to figma team for your incredible work :heart:

This is indeed greatly needed for complex libraries & projects, +1!

I would also love to see this functionality! Nested instance properties are a game-changer for complex designs systems, but having to modify each component instance’s properties one-by-one is a huge bottleneck compared to working with non-nested components.

I came here to say the same thing! Much needed for my complex design system but grateful for nested instances feature!

This would be helpful. Especially for complex List components that have various nested instances with a variety of options.
