    Why do images copy themselves?


      I'm trying to import a symbol into another composition in edge.

      In that symbol I've used same icons and they exist in the composition too.

      When I import the symbol instead of using the image that already exist in the library they make a new copy of the image for every place its been used.

      this makes the image folder really heavy with 20 copies of every image.


      Is there a smooth way to fix this problem, and make it work more like InDesign and links?

          Sitting with a similar problem. This is quite frustrating. The only solution I can see is relinking every images after the import of the symbol. But thats just one heck of a job. With 50+ different symbols and 10 images i everyone, thats 500 unnecessary copies and a hell lots of relinking.
