How to override the ID of a symbol

Would it be possible to override the ID of a Section that is a symbol?

You can update the ID of a section within a Symbol just like any other element ID, however as you’ve probably guessed this will change the ID of that element anywhere it’s used on the site.

As far as I can tell it’s not possible to update the ID of a specific instance of the Symbol with the Content Override feature, but I know Webflow is planning on a number of updates to this feature (including the ability to update instance styles) so it may be a good idea to add to the Wishlist :+1:
