Unable to publish modified variables

I’m getting an error that says “Publishing failed:” when I’m attempting to publish my library, it’s the modified variables that are preventing it from publishing (when I uncheck the modified variables the library is successful at publishing).

The variables in question are spacing and padding tokens. The tokens have been applied to loads of components so it’s making a real mess of my linked files!

Are there any known issues? is this a known problem? Help!!

Publish library - tokens

Yep, I’m facing the same issue. I used Color-Variables, but unfortunately, I can’t publish the library with them. I read in another thread that this problem was supposed to be fixed, but it’s been persisting for the last 4 days.

I’ve tried using both Figma and the Figma beta client, as well as restarting multiple times, but nothing seems to be helping

Me too, and I can’t call the color variable, as soon as I click the dropdown option for the color variable in the design file, the file crashes.

Same problem. Error when updating library and crash when applying colors using variables

Having an issue with variables breaking components too!

Today I tried to publish new variables to the library. But instead of the variables becoming available in the files with the library, they could not be published and now

  1. displayed in unpublished
  2. are not available in files with a connected library, an error occurs when trying to interact
  3. all updated child components lose their styles (where variables were tied that could not be updated)

How to get variables from unpublished and use them in the library?

Help me pls :frowning:
