Review answers

1Three benefits of using symbols are:
  • Easy application of multiple shapes.

  • You can edit one symbol, and all instances will be updated.

  • You can map artwork to 3D objects.

2The Symbol Stainer tool changes the tints and shades of a symbol.
3If you are using a Symbolizer tool over an area that has two different symbol instances, the symbol active in the Symbols palette will be the only instance affected.
4To update existing symbol instances, do the following:
  1. Use the Place Symbol button.

  2. Expand the artwork.

  3. Make any changes.

  4. Alt/Option drag the new artwork on top of the original symbol in the Symbols palette.

5Non-embedded images and groups of graphs cannot be used as symbols.
6You can access symbols from saved documents by choosing Window > Symbol Libraries > Other Libraries or from the Symbols palette menu.
