Show all external library connections

Hey there,

I’m in the process of repurposing a design system, copying components from one to the other. Relinking variables to local versions and overall just trying to get rid of any link to external variables, components, etc.

Is there a tool or plugin that would help me in this?


Hi @Luke_Kelly, Thanks for reaching out! I totally get how having a plugin for this situation would be super handy.

Hey @Luke_Kelly the way I found the solution: to go the list of external libraries → click swatch library and you can see what exactly is linked->with the help of plugins( find instance/find style) delete all the variants inside your file.
