Set an instance as Thumbnail without wrapping in a frame

Currently, we have a set of component variants that allow our team to easily create uniform thumbnails. However, trying to encourage the team to use them is challenging because of the need to wrap them in a frame before they can be set as a file’s thumbnail (people constantly forget this). Being able to set an instance immediately as the file thumbnail would save a lot of effort.

Anyone else struggle with this/think this would be useful?

Currently it’s not possible to set component instance as the thumbnail. You have to detach instance first.

Sorry deleted my other by mistake. I’m aware this is how it has to be done but thanks for sharing. The intention of this post is to raise the importance that this should be implemented to allow scalable use of thumbnail components with team design systems.
