Existing component has a variant that freezes the file when selected

Discovered this today, this was working fine previously.

We have a design kit component being used in another file, it has a rooted element with 3 variants. When I try to change it to the first two variants, there is no problem. When I select the third one, the file freezes (but not the desktop application).

Tried copy/pasting the component into other files and it works in some but not others (have not been able to figure out a pattern).

Going to continue to troubleshoot, but any help would be appreciated.

Re-creating a copy of the same component in the library and using it in the same file is successful.

Okay thanks. Posted here in case it was user error rather than a bug :slight_smile:

There was actually a quick fix for it. Haven’t used the native repair quick action before and running that seems to have fixed the problem.
