Reproduction steps:

2. In the Project window, open the "New Shader Graph" asset
3. Select the "Custom Function" node
4. Under "Inputs", create two input fields by pressing the "+" button two times

6. Change the value of the "New" field (first input field) from "Float" to another value (check the “Note” part of this description)
7. Observe the Console logs

Expected result: No errors appear
Actual result: "Property _CustomFunction_904a8066d87f49399456df00be764dc8_New_0 already exists in the property sheet with a different type" error appears

Reproduced with: 13.1.9 (2022.2.0a2), 10.10.1 (2020.3.48f1), 12.1.11 (2021.3.26f1)

  1. Resolution Note:

    This is fixed in 2022 and 2023. As this is low-pain and has user mitigations, we aren't planning on backporting further.
