So. I couldn't find any documentation of a symmetry tool for vectors (maybe I didn't look hard enough, idk) but what I did find out by accident is that you can put a copy of a symbol inside itself and then flip the nested symbol to create a symbol with symmetry. Yay! However, it becomes very fragile if you try to edit the symbols while sync is turned on. Attached image is a picture of my outliner if it isn't clear what I mean. I'll refer to the symbol with the full heart in its thumbnail as the Topmost Symbol and the one with the half heart as the Nested Symbol. Crash if you delete the topmost OR nested symbol in the layers panel (can get past this by detaching everything or turning off sync before deleting) Crash if you detach the nested symbol and delete the topmost symbol Crash if you select the topmost OR nested symbol and attempt to change the stroke or fill Crash if the layered symbol is part of a group with other objects and you attempt to change the stroke or fill of the group (For the record you can change these things just fine as long as you edit the curves individually, you just can't do it on anything that's labeled Symbol) I'm guessing the crashing is because these actions create an infinite loop? Maybe actions that create an infinite loop when used on nested symbols could throw an error and/or turn the sync off for you.
