I’ve experienced that I can only merge branches without the description, otherwise it fails to merge.
Steps to reproduce:
- In the branch you want to merge, select ‘Review and Merge changes’
- The window with the summary of your changes shows up. Write a description of the changes
- Try to merge (I’ve tried without a review only)
- The window closes and it freezes.
What works for now is reloading the tab (in the Figma desktop app), and attempting a new merge, this time without a description.
I find descriptions useful so I can give a quick note on what changed / updated in the branch.
