I am simply trying to use the Common Library elements and modify a "copy" of one, but the change flows through any instances I add to my design.
For example, I drag the ComboBox(win) to my "stage" area (Fireworks). For the design I am doing, I need about 5 of these menus, but when I go to change the text on it, all instances of it are updated with the same text??
How do I get unique instances of these library items?
Change the text in the Symbol Properties panel. Don't edit the symbol itself.
