    Making custom Symbols available by default

      Since creating placed artwork from an external AI file has proved problematic, I decided to try using Symbols.

       

      Does anyone know how to get symbols into Illustrator's default list, so that they are available to any document? I created my own symbol library, which I can load using the palette, but I can't seem to find a file that I can add my symbols so that they always just appear in the default list.

       

      The "Unlisted" symbols feature also looks promising, since I don't really need the user to see these at all.

       

      I'm not really sure how to go about this. Maybe someone has some experience adding and using custom symbols?
