How to Edit Symbols


#1

I have created a couple of symbols but cannot find the way to edit them. Can someone point me in the right direction? What I see is an option to rename pencil and a grayed out delete that says Can't delete an active symbol. Do you have to make it inactive to edit it? How?

You can not delete a Symbol that is in use. Remove all instances of it from your site first. After the Symbol is no longer in use, the trash icon will become active.

To edit a Symbol, you simply double-click on it on whatever page is using it, make changes, and those changes will be applied to all instances.

Thank you dkenzik!! I should get into more of a habit of double-clicking things instead of looking for context menus etc. sunglasses
