More work on tables
- Headers for sortable columns need 3 states: Ascending, descending, and a default state that indicates they can be sorted.
- The page, frame, and any 'slash naming' determine what the assets panel looks like. Gotta keep things sane.

So here’s an instance where some things don’t slot perfectly into variants.

I have 2 properties: Day and Selected. Toggling Selected on, changes the Day property to Selected Day. Changing the Day property to anything other than Selected Day toggles the Selected property off

Nothing’s broken, but this doesn’t feel quite right.


I need to avoid making a ton of variants.

Here, instead of making "Label" and "Label + helper text" variants of text fields, textareas, and dropdowns, you can just instance swap what’s inside the "Label" and "Label + helper text" components.

We’ll see if this ends up being the best approach

The variants feature is new and still in flux. They made a change last night and now text overrides will be preserved, even if the components in the set have different text.


More converting things to variants.

Apparently, text changes don’t get preserved unless the components in the set all have the same text.

Variants launched today. Time to start slowly porting everything over…

Looks like I’ve hit the private posts limit…
