Variables are incredibly powerful and enjoyable to work with. It’s astonishing how swiftly flexible designs with multiple themes can be created. However, the variables pop-up is challenging to work with. It appears to have been designed in Figma and implemented by the dev-team “as specified.”
Converting a complex theme with tens or hundreds of nested style-colors feels like torture:
- The pop-up should be resizable. The narrow column width for multiple modes will make links unreadable.
- The color pop-up should remember which tab was changed from “Custom” to “Library.”
- It would be excellent if color-styles could be dragged from the Local-Styles list in the inspector into the variables pop-up.
