Valentin - yes, it would be the simple answer. For texts - its kind of the only path to take. However, sometimes it is not necessary, to pre-comp, simply because in order to apply the changes, you need to enter a different composition.

Alternatively, you duplicate a layer, and link its main properties which you are going to alter to the original asset. In such way, pre-composing is avoided, and in case you need to make changes - doing so on original layer will update the duplicates too.
