Trying to nest Symbols causes application to not respond and crash.

Recommended Posts


I am trying to nest symbols, which seems possible to do but when I try to change the symbol "Shell Collection"  (by adding another symbol to an art board that contains the Shell Collection Symbol- s.g. Shell 3) it cause Designer to go into not responding and eventually crash.

I have attached the file for your information.

Hi @MartinWildman,

Welcome to the forums. 

This issue has been fixed in the latest 1.7 beta.

However, it is not generally a good idea to create symbols from artboards. You would be better off grouping those shells, create a symbol from that group(rather than from the artboard).
