How to clear “Used variables” that don’t exist in the file anymore?

when this happens to us, we go layer by layer to check where the old one is… it takes us so much time! and it can be in a hidden layer so imagine… but once you find the culprit and you delete it, they disappear

Same issue. Still waiting for someone from the Figma team to contact me

Hey All, sorry to hear you’re still having trouble!

As stated above, please try using the quick command: Detach deleted variables to quickly get rid of any existing ghost variables as the 1st step:

Last November 2023, we rolled out a fix that should have addressed any other lingering issues, but if you’re still having issues after using the quick command, please submit a bug report to our support team directly via the form here.
