I'm having problems with symbols in a design; all but one of the copies is updating.

I have created a template with several artboards for different versions of social media images. Part of the design has the text 'WEEK XX'. I have created a symbol and copied across four of the artboards. That's fine, they all update in unison.

I have created a fifth copy, which I needed to change to title case and add a drop shadow. I disabled sync to do this and made the changes. Even after enabling sync again, it doesn't update with the rest. The symbol attributes show Unlinked Transform/Constraints but the text itself shows Unlinked Layer Effects, Text, Text Frame.

I have tried different variations as it was initially the reverse; having spawned four copies from the title case version, the four refused to update.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I recall that there were some issues with symbols in the past, loosing their state and connections, but I don't know if these things have been fixed over times (version updates) or not.

This is slightly different to the issue in that post. I already have the artboards, it's only the symbols I have copied across them.

Yip, but as you can see there are probably still things that don't might work as expected for Symbols and thus have to be fixed.  - If you can continously reproduce this behavior you might want to file in a bugreport for AD and symbols handling here.
