    Any tips for getting the most out of Symbols?

      Two things: I like to put a / in the name of a Symbol to organise them in the Insert menu, but when I use Symbols, I usually don’t have a lot of contents in them, and store multiple Symbols in the parent group I’m using. This way I can take advantage of them better as I typically am more focused on those smaller things (and have more instances), than the larger group.

      We’ve got some pretty great things lined up for Symbols, so be on the lookout for that!

        See my question above as it relates to Symbol management. Flash (I know, haters) really did have the symbols concept done well. Just being able to transform a bunch of instances (scaling, opacity, even color) without disturbing the parent was magic.
