I want to create a symbol with an overridable text field that is empty by default. The problem is that Sketch automatically removes text fields that contain no text. I tried setting the text to various whitespace characters but Sketch still removes the text field.
The only workaround I found was to make a symbol of the text too and set the override to an empty string but that creates unwanted side effects (for example the text field symbol will also be overridable).
Is there another way to achieve this?
