    I might be wrong, but I think locally overriding styles never was a feature in Sketch, was it? I thought I had seen that somewhere or read about it. But not sure where:

    • InVision Studio has no styles at all as of now
    • XD only has some kind of unlinked style palette
    • and Figma works apparently similar to Sketch but excludes color from the styles (and applies text styles on a character – not layer – level).

    Adobe Illustrator and InDesign are probably the closest to what you are presumably looking for. Their implementation is pretty sophisticated, allowing to define which attributes are part of a style and which ones are not. But it is also complicated and hard to see through, if you're not working with styles you've setup yourself.
