UI Builder does not suggest variables defined in a USS attached to the Theme

UI Toolkit


Taken from


I have Palette.uss file with a :root selector and some variable definitions.

My Theme file references this USS.

In the UI Builder, with the correct Theme set, trying to Set Varible on a style property shows "List is empty".

You can experience this by extracting the attach package in a project. Make sure to select "Theme". For example modify the background-color in the "action-button" selector.

Extra Notes:

Adding the Palette.uss to the current document directly did not solve the issue. According to Alexandre Dzimi Mve it might be considered an improvement to support this.

The only workaround I found is to directly add the :root selector with the variables to the main GameScreen.uss file. Not sure how it's different than Palette.uss.

Expected Results:
The variables defined in Palette should be suggested

Actual Results:
The variables defined in Palette are not suggested
