I'm not sure if this is a bug or if there's something I'm missing here. If I create a symbol and copy it, both symbols are linked so I can make changes to them. The symbol also shows up in the symbols panel. If I then copy both of the symbols to a new document, they remain linked to eachother but they don't show up in the symbols panel for the new document. Is there any menu that describes or allows you to control the linkage between these two objects?
Hi, I have noticed that Symbols that are copied (copy and paste) from one document to another are not added to the Symbols Panel in the destination document. They do still function as Symbols. In contrast, a quick test shows that adding a Symbol from the Assets Panel adds the Symbol to the Symbols Panel immediately - at insert. Is the copy and paste behaviour by design? This behaviour can and has caused some confusion…. As a result of the copy and paste behaviour, the Symbols Panel does not provide a catalogue of definitions of the instances of Symbols in the Document. Is there another panel that provides such a catalogue? I prefer the Insert from Assets behaviour, but it compounds the potential for confusion. Regards Lionel
