Spreadsheet Lookup


Lookup values in spreadsheet data based on related text strings (keys). This could be useful, among other things, for creating design systems where many layers share common attributes. For example, in the table below, the key corner-radius would return a value of 10.


The advantage of using a lookup is that the row can be moved for organisational purposes without losing the link to the value.

Lookup Column - Select the column in the data to search for a key.
