Design tokens, should I ignore native color styles?

When using design tokens plugins should you also configure native color styles? (same for typography)

I have seem quite a few implementations on youtube and I’ve notice they always have both configured on the file. When testing token studio plugin it doesnt seem to have any sync with native color styles feature, which might cause overriding issues if you built both and have multiple editors working on these files.

If you already implemented design tokens on your projects, would appreciate any thoughts on the topic.


with this week launch of variables and modes seems like it.

You can push from Token Studio onto Figma styles if you use the paid version of Tokens Studio.

Select “Create Styles” from the “Styles & Variables” dropdown located at the bottom of Tokens Studio console.
