Hopefully, this is just an oversight that could be easily corrected.
They already have an interface for selecting colors by using color styles.
The heart of this request is simply to access color styles from any part of the interface from which one might choose/assign a color.
In our case, developers use color variables that they take directly from the design specs. This is something we could never do in XD and were excited about in Figma. However, if effects use color, but do not access the styles by name, there is no way for developers to glean the color variable (style name) from the effects spec.
I’m fairly new to Figma. Recent convert from the hideous Adobe XD.
Does Figma provide any feedback on feedback?
In other words, do these feature requests just sit here unattended with no “light at the end of the tunnel” response from Figma, or do they periodically let us know that something may be in the works?
This is a very reasonable request that has been languishing for a year now. It would be nice to know if anyone from Figma has acknowledge it.
