Symbols: Global font blocks independent of text

Recommended Posts

The first time I went for a symbol was to create a text object. I wasn't really sure how they worked, but I had imagined that I could create a text symbol that would globalize color, font type, size, etc on the object while not globalizing the actual  text string within the block. That way I could experiment with styling of all text in my art board like inline styles, headings, heroes, etc.

 

I see that is not the case, and thought I'd add it to the feature request list. It would be quite awesome to add another UI feather in Designers cap by allowing us to choose which parts of an object become globalized. 

 

This could extend to shapes for instance. Maybe I want to retain size only and allow each to have independent color, etc. 

 

My two cents :)

Hey NewInBoston, you can change text (as well as other things) by disabling the symbol sync button in the symbols panel and then re-enabling it when you're done making your changes. Learn more in this video
