If I create a variable and apply it to my design, then delete that variable, the design maintains a reference to a non-existant variable. This is reflected by a disabled/missing variable badge in the field or colors list:
The problem is, there’s no way to locate all instances of broken variable references. Through the process of learning to use variables, many have been created and re-created. There are broken references all over the place, and many have gone unnoticed.
It would be amazing to have a way to locate them all so they can be swapped for new variables.
We’ll pass this onto our Variables team for consideration. There isn’t an easy way to locate them all yet, but you can use the quick command: Detach deleted variables to quickly get rid of any existing ghost variables.
@dvaliao Actually this didn’t seem to detach all deleted variables. I ran the command and it did say it detached a ton, however I just clicked on a frame and it was still linked to a deleted variable (as indicated by a white tag in the field).
