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
A lot of people still need local instances.
I am one of them :)

These options (changing colors, stroke width...) shuld be avaialble with library elements too.
Who needs symbols anymore when using library instances ?

Extremely required and basic.
It can be done in Figma and XD if I'm not mistaken.
We need to be able to at least fill and stroke properties of instances separately.

this is very required to give the feature, to change color in live text in the dynamic symbol feature, for example when we are working for some banner where a call to action button is 'order now' that is placed in different colors in different creative and we have to just make the creative in different languages than it is needed very importantly.
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.
