Local variables and Library Variables

Variables in nested instances are now possible, which is great.

We now built a sophisticated map component, which can be imported to different files. However, we don’t have any control over variables once they are imported.

Proposal:
Show linked variables as well, not only local variables.

Hi Johann,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Variables.

I came across an existing topic on future requests that seems similar to your proposal: https://forum.figma.com/t/published-variable-adjustment-editing-non-local-variables/56904

Seems the Variables team is already involved in the discussion on the mentioned topic to consider it for the future. Could you please take a look and feel free to join the conversation or vote on the idea?

Please let me know if I’ve missed any points in your proposal.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
Junko
