Unable to Edit Style Descriptions in Branch

As the title suggests, we are unable to edit style descriptions in an active branch. We noticed there was a similar bug back in June but we’re still experiencing it here.

Hi @Banta_Patrick (& everyone else) - for the styles you’re seeing this on:

Are they local or subscribed styles that you are seeing this happen on? Currently, you can only edit local style descriptions.

If the style you’re trying to edit is from a subscribed library (meaning it originates from another file), you won’t be able to edit it.

Hi there, this is a branch of the file where the styles are defined so it seems like we should be able to edit them.

Yes, I’m also working on a branch to improve the styles.

And there is still the same bug.

Thanks @Patrick12 & @AnnaKayKay - we’ve let our engineering team know.

Could you both DM me a link to the files you’ve been able to see this happen on?
