Symbols - specific to a file or global

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.


The new Symbols feature seems very useful, though I was very surprised when, after creating several while working in one file, the symbols palette was then blank when I started a new document the next morning.


Are any symbols created limited to that specific document or have I missed something?


I'm relatively new to AF after hundreds of hours with Inkscape.

Hi Dennison, and welcome to the forums!


Symbols are local to a specific document, along with sync and other symbol features.


If you want the global equivalent, the term to use is Assets. You might have to reveal the Assets panel via View menu, Studio, Assets.
