Override background color in a symbol

Is it possible to override background color in a symbol?

I’ve seen threads that say overrides for background images are not possible, neither are text color overrides. Would make symbols instantly more powerful.

Nope, you can’t do that, both content and styles remain the same in symbols. You can unlink your symbol and apply a combo class to override the background color though.

Makes sense, what i was guessing. Transitioning from Sketch, learning how Webflow symbols work. Thanks
