Creating a Symbol / Master Created someplace else


#1

Hello,

Something that is annoying … and I haven’t figured out how to stop it is…

I import a SVG and turn it into a symbol. BOOM… what I am working on is an instance and the Master Symbol is like … 2000 away. What give :slightly_smiling_face:

How do I see the Master Symbol. I could really care less about an instance since I just turned it into a master.

Thanks!

Hello Stephen,

There are a few options you can do to find a Master symbol easily:

  1. Select an instance and press “Enter”
  2. Select an instance and use a double click on it
  3. Select an instance and choose “Go to Master symbol” in the context menu
  4. Select an instance and choose “Go to Master symbol” in the context menu of the objects tree
  5. Go to “Libraries”->“Symbols” tab in the left panel and find the needed Symbol through the “Edit Symbol” context menu
  6. Go to “Libraries”->“Symbols” tab in the left panel and find the needed Symbol by double clicking on the needed thumbnail

Hope that helps!
