Hey! First off all I am not sure whether this is a bug or I simply do not get the symbol concept in AD. My problem is as follows: +) I create a symbol - getting my first instance of it. +) I copy (or duplicate with the ALT key and dragging) the first instance dozens of times in the document. Sometimes I drag them also in from the Symbol panel. +) All instances are labelled correctly as symbols in the Layer panel. +) So far so good. That works fine. +) Later on I want to change let's say the color or the stroke or both of the symbol in general. So I do it in the Layers panel to one of the instances as to my understanding all the others should update accordingly. And it happens sometimes that changes do not apply to all of the other instances of the symbol - only a few update the rest remains in the old state. Sometimes only a handful update and all the others seem to be detached from the parent (symbol) at all - still being labelled als symbols and me not having them detached at all. +) The strange thing is that it does not happen in all my documents. For me it's like gambling: in some files the symbols behave as expected, in some others not. And I cannot get behind the why or when. _________________________________ Nota bene: #) The synchronisation option is always on! I hardly touch this option. #) I am using also the latest stable non-beta version and have the same issues with symbols. Thanks for any help! Chris
