    Modify Symbol

    jhochweber Level 1

      Hello,

      How can I modify a symbol and save it as another Symbol without changing the original Symbol?

      I know how to modify a symbol, but the original symbol and all its instances are modified too.

      I should have a lot of similar symbols and don't want do create each one from scratch.

          Duplicate the symbol in the symbol library and do what you want with it.  If you duplicate in the elements panel then if you change one the other changes too. If you duplicate in the symbol library then the original symbol stays as it is.                                                                                                                                                                        `

              My pleasure! Things are not as evident as they should be.
