Linking gradient colors to Styles colors

If a user updates a color in their file styles, it will not update gradients, as they currently can only use a Hex code.

Bringing this back up

It genuinely surprises me that this isn’t a thing and hasn’t been requested more widely. Figma doesn’t appear to support gradient masks either so can’t work around it with frame overlays. I work with a multi-branded design system with 12+ ‘themes’ and while we use gradients sparingly, it’s a hugely limiting gap in figma’s implementation of color styles.

Yes please! I designed a starterkit for our agency, as a barebones design system for websites, with the Batch Styler plugin I can easily change the base color styles, but gradients always need manual work. It’s a simple task, but easily forgotten or not up to date with the correct colors.

Agree! It’s a pain to update the hex values when the system values change.

Oh indeed, please please. Imagine a Library containing 864 gradients that needs to be updated times each position dependant colours manually… :pensive: Thanks for your consideration.
