Symbols - Editing Causing Lag

I’ve seen a few posts regarding this topic from a few years ago, yet I don’t think there was resolve for this.

I’ve noticed when editing symbols/components, there is a significant drop in performance and speed. Even when editing text, the characters lag seconds behind. I’ve had to unlink a lot of symbols to work in them to avoid slowness. Looking for input.

Browser:
Safari - Version 14.0 (16610.1.23.1.3)

System:
macOS Big Sur - 11.0 Beta (20A5343j)
2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7
16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Sorry to hear you’re experiencing so much lag with your Symbols. Are you using a large number of these across your site? I haven’t noticed issues here and I’m on a similar spec’d (albeit older) Windows machine for reference.

Just as a note, this removes a lot of the benefit of Symbols as now you’re changes aren’t pushed to all other instances.
