Create symbol option added to Layer Menu

Primarily to give the ability to assign a shortcut if you wish, the create symbol option is now available from the layer menu in Affinity Designer.

In the case of the iPad version this isn't a menu item, but is available to set as a shortcut - you can find it under Settings -> Shortcuts -> Commands.

The Layer menu (in AD) has become quite long, in the meantime. On my 14" MacBook Pro I have to scroll up and down to access all the menu items. I believe there's some room for consolidation. For instance how about a 'Convert …' menu item with below it 'to Curves', 'to Text Frame', 'to Text Path' 'Object to Artboard', 'Artboard to Object'? Would save 4 rows. Other people may have smarter ideas. Anyway, nice to see these improvements in the product.
