Merging two Libraries

We have a custom created library that we want to merge into a new expanded library.

The new library has imported all the same named custom variables, as well as font and styles from the old library.

Copied library components in old library to new library.

How do you get variants to break their connection from the old library and start using the new library?

In reference to: How to swap libraries via local variants

I tried swapping libraries, but it will not recognize vars, fonts, styles because they are exactly the same as the old library.
