Create custom variables for common values

When I’m working with Figma and create a prototype, I often have values that are repeating like a consistent padding/margin, a consistent drop shadow or border-radius for different components and many more. When I want to change it, I have to change it in various places. It would be cool if there was an option to bundle this in variables (like it’s already possible with colours)

Do you also run into those effort-high changes?
