Is there a way to migrate/consolidate variables?
For example I have to collections;
- component paddings
- Layout spacing
Both have numbers like 0, 4, 8 ,etc.
I now want to eliminate the component padding, but don’t want to manually adjust all padding. When I replace the name in the variable setting I get the message that the name must be unique.
How can I fix this?
I don’t think there’s a native way to easily handle this, but there is a plugin called Find Variables (https://www.figma.com/community/plugin/1255559699053207361/find-variables) which might help you out. It only handles one page at a time, but it allows you to select all elements using a given variable, letting you easily swap them over to another one. When done, delete all your now-unused variables. Tedious, but beats doing everything 100% manually!
thank you for the reply!
This is quite helpful already (:
