Duplicate a Symbol



I'm wondering if there is a way to simply duplicate a Symbol in the symbols list?
Like, make a copy!

I have a navbar that I want to duplicate to be able to change it, and not screw anything up in the original one.
Unlinking it messes up the interactions somehow and affects the original one on desktop view (when I'm in tablet view).

The different navbars are to be used in desktop/tablet+phone versions.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,


Hi Amanda!

To quickly make a symbol duplicate:

  • in the designer (page) select a symbol
  • cmd+c cmd+v
  • shift+cmd+a (unlinks the symbol)
  • shift+cmd+a again (create a new symbol)


Hello Vincent! :slight_smile:

Haha! Love this..
I thought I tried this exact thing (minus the commands), and it messed everything up.. but now it's working!

Thanks a bunch! :slight_smile:


Haha you're welcome :slight_smile:

Type ?while in the Designer to get a popup with all the shortcuts!


Even better :ok_hand:
