Any way to use a Lightbox Link element in a Symbol?

I’m using a lightbox inside a Symbol. But there seems to be no way to create an override field for the Media link. So either the lightbox links to the same image no matter what the specific image is for that Symbol instance, or I have to leave the Media link blank. Is this by design? Or is it an oversight that will be corrected someday?

Any ideas for how to work around it?

This may be something that’s fixed with the updates coming to symbols (eventually being called components) but as far as I know the override fields currently only work for text and standard image elements.

Other than unlinking the symbol for the instances in which you want different lightbox media, there isn’t really a good workaround that I know of unfortunately.

Thanks @mikeyevin. Fingers crossed that symbol/component updates come soon and enable this. For now I’m solving it by replacing with a standard, larger image without a lightbox link.
