“Go to main component” button is gone (read below)

Got the reasoning from support after a lot of back and fourth, turns out the button disappears for two reasons:

  1. You don’t have access to the library — the button disappears so you can’t open the library link.

  2. You do have access to the library but only as a Viewer. This one makes zero sense to me so I sent an additional inquiry. Update: it happens because I have access to this library using a public view link but I was not invited to this file directly by email.

The second point seems like quite a big regression for design systems users for example, who usually don’t have edit access to libraries they are using. Also for developers who need to go inspect a whole component set that’s used in the screen.

Also again just showing the button greyed out with an explanation would be a much cleaner and usable solution.
