Way to get a component or symbol instance element that has changed?

Let’s say you have a group converted into a component with 3 text fields in it. Let’s call it ComponentExample1.

You put the component onto an unused artboard.

Then you have a few artboards that have component instances of ComponentExample1 on them.

In one of the component instances you change text field A to a different size.

If you have a GUID reference to text field A in the master ComponentExample1 can you get the other instances of text field A from that information?

For example, I’m referencing textFieldA by it’s GUID and that points to the instance in the master component. But if the user changes textFieldA in an component instance I don’t know how to get a reference to the local textFieldA.

Does this make sense?
