Some components from Library suddenly lost content?

Starting this morning, I’ve encountered what I believe to be a bug in that some components suddenly aren’t rendering their content when used an a separate file from the Library itself.

For instance, our Modal looks like this in our Library:

This used to work fine, but as of this morning, when I use that same Modal in a separate file, it renders like this:

The container itself is viewable, but the contents are not. I’ve seen this happen with a few other components as well and have no clear way to resolve it.

Try to regenerate all instances in that file:

Search (Cmd/Ctrl + P) Regenerate all instances (slow) command

That didn’t fix anything, unfortunately. Tried regenerating both from the Library file and the separate file. I surely found a bug, but I’m curious why it doesn’t seem more wide-spread? Nothing about how this component is constructed is different from any other component we’ve built.

This is a very rare issue (and a fairly recent one), so not many reports can be found online. To help the team fix it you can report it to Figma support team via the bug report form with the file link and other useful information you may have.

Ok, thanks for the help!

This bug was fixed after a restart of the Figma app. Reported it anyway :slight_smile:

I’m also experiencing this issue and very concerned that there’s no follow-up to this.

Does anyone have any ideas as to:
a) what’s causing this?
b) what solutions are there for this?

Solutions I’ve tried so far:

  • Restarting the Figma app
  • Clearing the Figma app cache
  • Regenerating instances
  • Repairing selected instances
