Hi guys (Paul and Toufiq),

This issue happens because you do not have a !default for your SCSS variables.
It is a best practice to have a !default value set for all SCSS variables so they can actually be defined, until another value is passed.

There are two things that you can do:

1. Create a variables.scss file and @import it before anything else in the master.scss file.

2. Set the !default for each variable at the very top of the theme.scss file:

$text_color: #252525 !default;

it's problem which happens from time to time, why do not know why yet.
Please :
1) Uninstall and install again
2) Then try to save settings in Helix
3) If will not help... sorry you have to wait for update.
