I am trying to create several separate instances of the same symbol, which will then be edited individually with regards to text and color changes.
This has never been an issue for me previously, I would normally go into the symbols panel in the library, duplicate the symbol, and then rename and drag onto the composition.
For some reason this isn't working for me, as when I duplicate and rename it, playing the new symbol with new edits, still opens and plays the original symbol...
What am I doing wrong?
Self-diagnosed and problem sorted.
Result was that I had a symbol within all of the duplicated symbols which had a 'click to play' action applied to it. The nested symbol was not duplicated resulting in it always opening the original container symbol.
