Constraints and Symbols

Recommended Posts

I created some assets for my designs which they have different constraints, when I add them to artboard and convert them to symbols, it removes their constrains and breaks my designs.

Is it by design or a bug?

Hi Farshadatis,

This is By Design. What is happening is that when you turn an object to a Symbol, it places your original object inside the new Symbol object. If you expand the Symbol object you will see that your constraint settings are still applied to the object inside that so you will have to remove them from that object and set them on the Symbol.

If you were making a symbol out of several objects, you might have all different constraints set so there is no easy way to set them all to the new symbol object.
