edit color of text in symbol instance
I think it should be possible to edit the color of text in a dynamic symbol instance, just like it possible to change the color fill of any other element
This a real need. The color editing of the text makes every sense. Having the text editable is a plus, for instance, for instances that need translation.
But the main advantage is not even that. The only way to control the color is to convert the type to shapes but that makes it unworkable because when changing the color you would need to select every individual shape....
Editing content of the text can possibly change the dimensions of a symbol and therefore break the layout. Do you think it a tolerable evil?
Seems like a good suggestion though. Ai can borrow a lot from components and blocks from Figma or various CADs.
For dynamic symbols to make sense it should be possible to edit the text content, color, and other text attributes of each symbol instance without altering the master.

Yes please! Indeed with the possibility to change the actual text of a dynamic symbol. This is a very powerful tool in the Sketch Application. Would love this.
This, along with possibility to change the actual text of a dynamic symbol instance...

This would be very helpful in instances where you have the same text against different backgrounds and need to maintain contrast.
