How upset would you be if could no longer access your Color Palette in Settings > General when we release Color variables in Styles > Style Variables?
Color variables are like the recently introduced Font variable in that they allow you to set global color variables that can be used throughout your app (ex in a style for the background color or in a text box for the font color). If a color variable value is updated, any element with that variable attached to it will also update.
As we near the release of Color variables into the editor, the Color palette will be obsolete in that your color variables will now appear in the color picker instead of any colors originally set in the color palette.
What it looks like today:
Ideally, we would simply remove the Color palette when we release Color variables, but want to ensure that users wouldn’t be relying on the colors set in the color palette. If this is too much of a breaking change, we have options to mitigate any disruptions as well.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
