New Symbol and Instance

Normally when you drag-and-drop a selected object into the Symbols palette (Window>Symbols), a new symbol is created, but the original artwork has no connection to the symbol—the artwork is not an instance, meaning all its paths are still editable. To create a new symbol and turn the original object into an instance of the new symbol, press-and-hold the Shift key as you drag the artwork into the Symbols palette.
