Can I use the Figma Tokens plugin with the tokens manager?

We won’t be supporting Figma Tokens during this first iteration but we will be able to support them in the near future.

What if I delete my token set?

Your tokens will still be in your styleguide even if you delete your token set from the Tokens tab; however, the link to your token set in GitHub is disconnected. If you want to update your tokens in your styleguide, you must delete them and reinsert them.
