👤Anyone with Can Edit permissions can reset Overrides

When we make a change to a property in a single Instance, we call this an  Override. You can use Overrides to create variations of a Component.

You can reset overrides on an Instance to restore the properties of the Master Component.

I want to:

View Overrides

You can view Overrides in the  Instance section of the Properties Panel.

We won't show any Layer specific overrides if you select the entire Instance. Make sure you select that specific Layer to view Overrides applied to it.

  1. Select the Layer in the Canvas or Layers Panel.
  2. Find the Instance section in the Properties Panel. Click the Reset Instance icon.
  3. We will show a Reset [Property] option for any properties that has overrides applied.

    In the example, both the  Text and the Layer Name have been overridden:

Reset All Overrides

You can reset all Overrides applied to a single Layer, a selection of Layers, or the entire Instance.

  1. Select the Layer(s) or Instance you want to reset.

    Tip! Hold down the modifier key to selected a nested layer:

    • macOS: Command
    • Windows: Ctrl
  2. Reset Overrides in one of the following ways:
    1. Click the Reset Instance icon in the Toolbar
    2. Right-click on the Layer/Instance and select Reset Instance
    3. In the Properties Panel, click the Reset Instance icon and select Reset Overrides
  3. We will reset the properties of the Layer/Instance to match the Master Component.

Note: You can only reset a specific property from the Instance menu in the Properties Panel.

Reset a Specific Property

  1. Select the Instance in the Canvas or Layers Panel.
  2. Find the Instance section in the Properties Panel. Click the Reset Instance icon.
  3. Select which Properties you wish to reset.
    • Select Reset [Property] to reset a specific property
    • Select Reset Overrides to reset all properties for that layer.
  4. We will reset the property to match the Master Component.
