Cant override the css-variable

Managed to target what I wanted with this funky selector, but it doesn't seem optimal 😅

:global([class^="documentPanel_documentViewerContainer"]) {
    background-color: #efefef;

-part of the selector was not necessary here 🙌 Don't really know this selector, but it's something Sanity uses in their docs , but apparently it was unnecessary here 🙂
So this is also working:

[class^="documentPanel_documentViewerContainer"] {
    background-color: #efefef;
But still looking for a better way to solve this than using this weird custom selector..

It feels a bit fragile to make a selector like this, and Sanity encourages you to override css-variables for this kind of styling . There is a css-variable that should work for this,
, but it seems like there is a bug with this particular css-variable, can't override it, it just gets set to

Hey Daniel! I believe there are only certain variables you can override in the Studio. If it’s not listed here , it can’t be overridden.
