You have the symbol scaled up. When you paste in the 100% main timeline object, it will now show scaled up too.
You can fix that by looking at the scale numbers. Taking an easy example, if the symbol has a scale of 200, make the thing you are pasting be a scale of 50. Then it will look right.
You are right. Thank you!!
Follow up question Colin H..
Where do you see the % scale of a symbol? Is it in Properties?
Yes, look at the top part of the properties panel while the symbol is selected on the stage. You can click and type the number you want. You should click on the number anyway, to see all the decimal places of the current scale.
