Ability to reorder Variable Modes

+1 We need this. Not just modes. We need to reorder Collections too.

Moving them from one file to another would also be a great help.

Let’s keep this thread alive until they get noticed.

We need this!!

Thank you for sharing! We’ll pass this onto the team for consideration.- Toku


I found a plugin that’s specifically for reordering modes, its called Reorder Variable Modes. You can drag’n drop them in the order you want, specially useful for setting a default mode (first column) after you’ve created several others.

It’s pretty bizarre that this isn’t possible already. It’s such an essential and needed feature, and yet, it is absent for some reason.

We’re still waiting for this obvious thing!

We need this so bad!

+1 Still need this!

+1 Would be much appreciated

+1 to this. One thing I’m finding w/ Figma’s deeper features is how much scope we’re required to plan for up front, and this is a perfect example. As a designer, this just isn’t how I typically think – ideas grow as needs arise. A simple re-ordering feature should be a no-brainer.

This would be very valuable to me as a design system maker! For example, we’re shifting to mobile-forward development, but previously prioritized desktop screen sizes. Would like our default modes to reflect what designers are now most frequently prototyping in!
