Since yesterday, I have been dealing with an issue related to the updates of the component variations.
I am adding new variations in the component and update the file. Subsequently I update the file that I want to use the new variations but the new variants don’t appear.
The solution that worked is to go to the swap instance and double click on the icon. That way the variations are updated.
As it is understood, this is not practical, especially if somebody works with a design system and the components are frequently updated.
In my case I have to double click this icon on 12 pages for it to update.
