Symbols & Text Sync Question

Recommended Posts



I noticed that the symbols properties when dealing with text is not very smart about what changes I make and what to still keep in sync.


For example made a text in a symbol. I changed the text content. Pressed sync again.


However when I tried to change the color afterwards to another symbol duplicate, the desynced text layer , didn’t change the color as well.


Since I only edited the text content itself and not any other properties, the color should still be in sync. 


However the same thing works as expected on normal objects.


Is it a bug?

I'm afraid this is by design. Each character has its own colour, and if you change the text it doesn't know which colours go with which characters any more. In future we might try to handle the special case where all the text is formatted the same, but at the moment we deliberately don't attempt to do that.
