Nested Components - Colors

Hey all,

I watched a couple of the videos and was hoping to find a good way of setting up a color palate as components. In some of the videos they show up under "Element / Brand Color"

Clicking into the nested element and editing the master should give me the ability to change the background color for any element that has this nested component. In the video, the author changes it to a blue color that is then shown everywhere. ( 

What I am struggling with is HOW to create a component like "Element / Brand Color." The video shows that it is a rectangle with 100% for width and height. When I create a rectangle, establish it as a component, then try to switch the width and height, it wont let me. I see the option, but it is not selectable.

I was able to download the help files that go along with the video, and I can copy that element into my project and manipulate it as the video shows, but I cannot seem to create it by myself. 

What I would really like to do is create a series of color components that are set at 100% that could be used to change the color of backgrounds and even text across my designs.

I am using the Windows version of InVision Studio. I am on Studio version 1.28.2 which is showing as Up To Date.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
