Variables distinguish between auto layout gap and padding

Currently, when using variables, in the settings you can’t select wether you want a value (for example, padding-sm) to apply to just the padding or the gap of an auto layout. Which means that when you want to select a gap variable, it shows all the padding values as well.

Can we get a setting for this?

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your idea! We greatly value your feedback, and we would like to gauge the reaction of other members in the community. We may consider it for future enhancements!


I was thinking the same thing recently. It would make perfect sense to give us the freedom to differentiate further if needed, as it would allow me as design system administrator to have the right variables show up in the right place for colleagues to improve clarity by reducing the shown variables.
