Font Family As a Variable

Variables are one of my favorite things in the latest version of Figma. However, one thing that I would love to see is to be able to make the font family that all of my font styles are based off of a text variable.

Picture this scenario: You create a bunch of reusable components in a “Design System” style repository. Then, you create a new file, or duplicate a template file, and link the “Design System” library to that file. However, this site design is for a different company, and you need to change styles. You can now set the color styles to be pulled from a variable, which works great. However, when you try to replace the Design System text styles with the local text styles, it doesn’t work, because since the Design System Library is now linked, all of the text styles are now included in that document.

Hey @Rod_Christensen, thanks for the feedback!

We’ll pass this onto our Variables team for consideration.
