Creating symbol breaks target elements in Interactions

Creating symbol disconnects target elements in an Interaction

Hey all,

I set up a popup overlay, triggered via an interaction through multiple different buttons, so I thought it best to turn said popup into a symbol for easy use later on.

Webflow completely lost the location of the target element, so I had to break the link to the symbol and change targets.

I’ve had to redo this for every page the interaction was added… :-<

Same Interaction on a different page, but with broken targets


Is this new? I haven’t experienced this before?

Cheers,
Marshy

UPDATE

It appears that after setting my overlay element as a symbol, Webflow’s created a random Div Block 104 in place of the original class name Full Screen Overlay

I definitely don’t have 103 unnamed Div classes, so I’ve no idea what’s going on here haha
