Request: Global variables to be used as design tokens

A file or library configuration where the users could define global variables and assign each of them a value. This variables then can be used as a replacement of the actual value. If the global variable value is modified, this will automatically update the dependencies. This variables can include numbers, booleans, strings, hex code, etc. Fusion 360 have a similar feature for similar purposes.

Example: Create a variable named: padding_small with a value of 24px. Then, create a frame and use a padding of padding_small instead of using actual numbers. This same variable can be used for multiple items. If the global variable is modified, it will update the different instances using it.
