I’m having trouble setting up a component that changes the state of its parent. The frustrating part is that there’s no indication that Figma doesn’t allow this setup, it just doesn’t let me pick a different variant from the drop-down.
I don’t seem to be able to add attachments to show my setup, but to reproduce:
- Create component A with one variants
- Create component B with two variants
- Add component A as a child of component B. Add an On click → Change to interaction to the instance of component A. The two variants of component B will show up as options under the variant drop-down; you can open the drop-down, but you cannot select any variant besides the one that is already selected
Is this Figma’s intended behavior? I’ve run into this several times, and it’s causing a lot of time-consuming reconfiguration. I’ve also seen this described before, but with no response. I would have to detach any instance I want to do this with, making the instance system useless.
