    Line into Symbols


      I am simply trying to split a line into three symbols but every time I make a window on part of the line it selects the whole thing.  It seems like this should be an extremely easy fix but I have been fighting this for longer than I should admit.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

          There are different selection tools.  There is an arrow that has a white fill (Selection Tool (A)) in it that behaves the way you say.  But there is another arrow with a black fill (Selection Tool (V)) that allows selections of segments.  Also the lasso tool will only select a portion of the line.


          If the line you are trying to split up is already a symbol then the whole line will be selected in any scenario.  You need to get down to the raw drawn object.
